Not Heartbeats

Remember back in 2003 when José González’s Heartbeats graced that Sony Bravia advert with the bouncing balls in (presumably) San Francisco?

Well, now I’ve heard another of his songs on another advert. The advert – it’s for Nedbank – is nowhere near as iconic as the Sony one, but José’s distinctive voice and style are every bit as engaging as in Heartbeats.

That, as you may have noticed, was Stay Alive. And this time, José finds himself softly singing over a piano, rather than a guitar.

Very nice.
