The head of music for londonfm.digital said that he loved the new single ‘The Distance’ from ‘Man Among Men’ with it’s dreamy, ethereal, epic and majestic alternative rock production, strong distinctive vocals and overall heartfelt vibe, that touches the soul and gets the hairs standing up on your arms. This is a strong, dark and atmospheric single that has a stadium rock sound that reminds us of seminal acts like Sisters of Mercy and Fields of the Nephilim. For that reason, we have put it on the daily playlist and it will be played 2-3 times a day in general rotation + as a special powerplay at approx 5:35 PM UK time for a month or more.
