Glaslyn : Out of My ControlJune 2018
Cardiff based singer-songwriter Al Lewis' last collaborative release - the startlingly good Ghost, recorded with Alva Leigh - was articulate, aching Americana. From that reference point this new single, Out Of My Control, is an unexpected tangent and a spellbinding revelation.
Working with Kayla Painter as 'Glaslyn', Lewis has matched his blues-edged vocal to brilliant electronic pop and Painter's pure singing voice, creating an energised track that builds to a chorus with the musical feel of tumbling weightless in clouds. The song has been picked up by the Channel 4 series Humans - where its mix of the organic and the synthesised is a perfect fit. More music is promised as Glaslyn build their creative partnership, but this is a remarkable enough beginning. [ Links : Glaslyn Twitter ]
