Lloyd James Fay is a singer songwriter from Glasgow who has just dropped a brand new single. He often seeks influences from Simon and Garfunkel, Laura Viers and Mark Kozelek but to name a few. His latest single ‘Idiocracy’ has just dropped this morning and it will feature on his debut EP ‘Fake Depth’ which is scheduled for release on 8th May.
‘Idiocracy’ is a light-hearted view on today’s’ society, but none the less straight to the point. Lloyd is clever in his use of lyrics in the way he voices his opinions of others, which works well with his music.
With his unique vocals taking centre stage of the piece he works eveything around this flawlessly. The addition of strings is elefeanct and a beautiful touch which I find others often struggle to pull off, but he;s worked it perfectly. The single is brought together with his lower harmonies and the dreamy chord progressions, making it an absolute breeze to listen to.
Overall I feel that ‘Idicoracy’ is almost giving me a flash back to my school days, with my favourite English teacher at the front of the class in his suit and trainers giving us the heads up on the types of people we will meet on our journey of life. To which, it has been noted in a song, and is correct however many years ago this lesson took place.
