Back in September, Aussie-born but UK-based singer/songwriter JOEL SARAKULA charmed us with his blue-eyed soul groove, ‘Tragic’. He now follows that one up with an equally easy on the ear cut, ‘Lonely Town’.
Once again there’s a now fashionable retro sound… analogue-synth lines, female backing vocals and tight rhythm section – a sort of 70s disco (very) lite. The lyrics however are totally contemporary. We’re told that ‘Lonely Town’ is all about a futuristic, dystopian city scene where citizens are completely beholden to their screens and their jobs … sounds familiar?
JOEL SARAKULA ‘Lonely Town’. Out now!
