Euan Blackman crafts introspective and evergreen songs for rainy road trips with wistful gazes. There is something of the past in his music, not retrospect, but memories we all share, tales of the human condition in soft focus.
His debut single ’24 Hours 7 Days’ comes out on Friday 30th July. It is the first single from his EP ‘Grateful For The Moments Spent Alone’.
Self-written and produced in his bedroom studio over lockdown, the track details the pain of long-distance relationships. With soft double tracked vocals akin to Elliott Smith, along with a lush ‘The 1975′-esque arrangement, ’24 Hours 7 Days’ is the kind of warm comforting sound we need after the tumultuous year.
Despite being unreleased, ’24 Hours 7 Days’ has been spun by Dave Monks on BBC Radio Merseyside and has gathered notable praise from serious artists and radio DJ’s including Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1), Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park), Benjamin Francis Leftwich (Dirty Hit), Beaux (Dirty Hit), Ewan J Phillips and many more.
Euan Blackman’s music may just be starting out, but it feels like you’ve known him for some time.
