Oxford singer songwriter Lewis Watson unveils the artistic new video for his track 'It Could Be Better' which features on his recently released third EP 'The Wild'.
The stop-motion effect video shows talented illustrator Lucy MacLeod designing a stunning black and white portrait of him with a ribbon on it reading 'It Could Be Better'. The song is a slow, acoustic affair with an almost bluesy rhythm to it, adding to the sombre tone of the lyrics. It's a sad song, and certainly moving, but it doesn't emanate a sense of misery to the listener - it is simply relaxed and very easy on the ears.
Lewis seems to have a penchant for sad songwriting though, as he first gained attention from his first EP aptly titled 'It's Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW' which was soon followed by 'Another Four Sad Songs' EP. He has now been confirmed as a support act for Benjamin Francis Leftwich on his upcoming UK tour this May and, though he has just completed his first major set of headline dates, will follow-up with a further tour in June 2013. He is also set to hit the big UK festivals this summer with appearances at the Isle of Wight's Bestival, Live at Leeds, Brighton's Great Escape and Dorset's Camp Bestival.
