London rock soloist Drew Davies has released his latest single ‘X and Y’ via AD1. The song is lifted off of his forthcoming self-titled album. Music blog Indie music shares their opinion on the single, “Davies creates retro rock nostalgia in his soundscape on ‘X and Y’, but his message is of modern thinking, about gender norms that constrict us from being our true selves.” Support thus far includes a wide wide variety such as Clash Magazine, Atwood Magazine, Music Week, Music News, and Pure Grain Audio to name a few.
Drew Davies says, “I wrote ‘X and Y’ on women’s day a few years ago. It’s a song that on one hand calls for equality for all people, no matter their age, sex or orientation; whilst on the other hand calling out hypocrisy stemming from the kinds of people who say one thing publicly and another behind closed doors. It was originally written on piano but for the single and album we decided to add a pseudo-Tarantino vibe with vintage guitars and synthesizers.”
Lyrically Davies shines light on modern society, in the hopes to engage and create discourse around the topic of gender normalities.
