Hailing from South Yorkshire, London-based rock soloist Drew Davies has spent the better part of the last decade treading the boards of venues and festivals across the UK and Europe with various bands, working in musical collaborations, writing for other artists and singing in session gigs. Through successes and setbacks, he has poured himself into his musical labours and has now produced his most personal work to date. New single 'Beautiful World' is a timeless piece of indie-rock and only serves to increase the momentum.
Pulling from a wide array of influences, Drew Davies is inspired by everything from 50’s rock n’ roll to electronica, citing acts such as The National, Scott Walker, Vangelis and Tom Petty. From this palette of familiar reference points he has created a genre-bending sound that bears semblance to the likes of Sam Fender, Future Islands, and The War On Drugs.
Speaking of the track Davies explains: “‘Beautiful World’ was a song I wrote about the problems facing us all. I wrote it like an episode of the 9 o'clock news, it focuses on the divisions we see in society and the disenfranchisement and fall of many to the edges of society; all set against the backdrop of the climate emergency we are living through. The song is not political, instead I wanted to focus on how we could work better together than apart.”
‘Beautiful World’ will be released on 15 November via AD1, ahead of the release of We Need To Talk EP on the 22nd of November. Check out 'Beautiful World' first on Music Week Presents.
