Your Hero Is Not Dead

After some promising singles and lots of hot tipping it's time for London songwriter Westerman to drop the big one. His well crafted electronic pop and soulful rock moves have been compared to the likes of Arthur Russell and Peter Gabriel  - so that place where the slightly experimental meets the mainstream. All bodes well...hopes are high for this one. 


Hotly-tipped London auteur Westerman returns to the fledgling Blue Flowers imprint with new single ‘Confirmation’. 2017’s Call And Response EP brought free-flowing comparisons to Nick Drake and Arthur Russell, and those influences remain strong on this track. Add in a bit of a ‘Wicked Game’ flavour and a few ooh-what’s-he-done-there chord-changes and you've got yourself a leftfield indie hit.


The comparisons to Arthur Russell have flown freely for Westerman since his emergence a couple of years back. Russell certainly lurks in the corners of Westerman’s new single ‘Edison’ - their singing voices in particular are uncannily similar - though the song is very much drawing from the Love Is Overtaking Me end of the spectrum. That means there’s room for plenty of other welcoming folk-/soft-rock influences here - Belle & Sebastian, Future Islands and Jens Lekman all come to mind.


Sold out - sorry!
