Acoustic singer songwriter Lewis Watson releases a beautiful new love song entitled 'Close', complete with a quirky new video. The song is featured as a demo on his new EP 'Four More Songs' which is available to buy now with a limited number of signed copies also available.
The video is a low quality animation featuring Lewis driving through the countryside in a little white car before somehow ending up driving through the ocean floor through coral reefs and shoals of fish. The madness doesn't stop there however, as his unconventional car journey takes him onto a beach, through a jungle, around a mountain and onto the clouds before he parachutes down back onto a country road. The concept presents a sense of freedom that Watson puts forward in his lyrics and the childishness of the animation enhances the positive feeling that is a far cry from his debut EPs from 2012 'It's Got Four Sad Songs On It' and 'Another Four Sad Songs'.
'Four More Songs' has become Lewis' fourth top ten hit on iTunes having just reached number 10. He has just played a milestone gig at Glastonbury 2013 and shows no sign of relenting yet, with a handful of further festivals on the cards for the rest of the summer.
