The track sees the artist enlist the guitar work of Connor Botherway-Hill.
Following the well-received release of her 2021 debut single ‘Cloudy Vision’, emerging UK artist Lucy James has followed it up with ‘Underwater’, an unconventional jazz-pop ballad that features Connor Botherway-Hill on guitar.
The track moves with a delicate pace, as the artist explores the physicality of emotional distancing and desensitisation. There is a really nice juxtaposition through the lyrics of the track, with the technical and abstract jazz harmonics providing a unique contrast to imagery of the ocean, and its more serene and calming qualities. ‘Underwater’ is a track that continues to showcase Lucy James as a truly unique artist who has a sound that feels both accessible and quite unlike anything else you’re likely to hear anytime soon. Whether you’re interested in the intricacies of her distinctive songwriting or the softness of the tone, there is so much here to sink your teeth into and enjoy.
