The former Dexys Midnight Runners member Andy Leek has unveiled a snapshot into his long-planned album From Icarus To Phoenix. Containing a distinctly rootsy edge, from delicately strummed acoustic guitar, harmonica and blues riffs, the sampler hints to some of the artist’s best work.
‘Beloved’ (listen above) demonstrates Leek’s wistful sound. A simple, yet supremely catchy melody underlines the work whilst his drifting vocals neatly combine with the acoustic chords. In addition, there are some neat flashes of electric guitar musing which compliment the track well.
The full album is scheduled for release early 2014. Find out more over at http://www.andyleek.com/
