Hartlepool singer-songwriter James Leonard Hewitson has shared ‘Deader’, the first track taken from the debut LP ‘Only The Noise Will Save Me’, due out this autumn via Butterfly Effect Records. The brand new track is a pulsating expression of his trademark witty persona.
Soaked in a party mood, Hewitson’s slacker pop is all about catchy melodies and playful guitars, resulting in an energetic taste of the vibes of the full-length, focusing on modern-day uncertainty, mental health, and pop psychology. A sharp lyricism stands out immediately, projecting the listener in a charming dimension, where the artist’s message is corroborated by sonic hints that take influences from the like of Gang of Four and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
