“We are the innocents, we are chosen” is the grand opening claim of Helen Boudling’s single ‘The Innocents’. With lyrics like that this single makes the promise early on to be an anthem, encouraging us all to join the universal cry of “We are the innocents”. Yet the music and overall production fails to deliver sufficient support to such a bold claim. The opening is reminiscent of Owl City’s ‘Fireflies’ and has that same dreamy somewhat other-worldy feel. There is an undoubted sense of crescendo through this single, it is just a shame that it does not build more to truly become the anthem that I feel it was intended to be.
