New James Leonard Hewitson songs are like buses – you wait a year for them and then two come along almost at once. The second he’s shared in three weeks, ‘Waiting For A Call’ tackles the anxiety surrounding exactly that; the feeling of holding out for something that may never come. It’s out tomorrow, lifted from the Commercial EP that follows on July 29th, but we at Backseat Mafia are proud to present the first listen.
The Hartlepool man says that it ‘takes aim at the culture of contact centres; exploring the frustration and desperation that can come with office life’. He released his debut album Only the Noise Will Save Me in the distant past of February 2020, and the new song develops in such a way that points to the EP being a more expansive affair. There’s a limited edition tape run out at the end of next month via Win Big Records on Bandcamp, where you can also listen to lead track ‘Temporary Values’, which he released at the start of June.
