Glasgow-based singer, Iain Wilson brings us some new 80s style pop songs with his own unique sound. With influences drawn from the likes of Chvrves and Charli XCX, Iain Wilson’s song brings the listener into a world that has its own individuality yet familiar sound.

His latest track, “I Want to Run” has incredibly simple yet heartfelt and sincere lyrics, a perfect follow up from his debut release “Reasons Why”. A powerful ballad with the right balance of dark yet bright synth tones which almost mimic rain drops and bring out Wilson’s emotive vocals.

His influences are clear from the beginning of the track, which is easy to listen to. The build of the track is clear that you are following him on this emotional journey.

Released on the 15th May, “I Want To Run” is available on all major streaming platforms and be sure to keep an eye out for his debut album, due for release at the end of the year!
