HARTLEPOOL singer James Leonard Hewitson embraces the sounds of the eighties on new single ‘Commercial Vibe’.
Angular and addictive, the track finds Hewitson berating hypocrisy and modern capitalism in the age of the pandemic. Fuelled by nostalgic, 80s-indebted synths, its underlying darkness is juxtaposed by Hewitson’s sprightly vocals and bright, bubbly melodies.
Of the track, he explains: “It’s mainly about and inspired by the cold resilience of capitalist thought in society and government during the Coronavirus pandemic. How, despite disaster, death and tragedy, whims and desires were still being packaged and sent out from Amazon Warehouses.”
