After a successful debut, Welsh alt-indie singer-songwriter San Francisco (Iwan Grant) is set to release their highly anticipated single, ‘Night Drive’, which switches up his sound from his preceding singles to expose a softer side; but the sonic guitars still made the cut.
The indie-rock jam practically leaves trails of headlights and streetlamps in your eyes as you listen to the viscerally sticky-sweet anthem unfold, exuding the same angular popping fretboard ingenuity as the likes of Johnny Marr and Aaron Dessner. Even with the reminiscences, Night Drive carries plenty of the artist’s distinctive style. Any fans of indie big riffs and catchy choruses will be literally and figuratively hooked.
