The uplifting new single sees the Hartlepool artist in his chaotic indie rock pomp
James Leonard Hewitson comes out of the blocks firing on latest single ‘Only The Noise Will Save Me’, and never lets up throughout its duration.
The track, a defiant war against internal mental health issues, expertly creates this sense of chaos and struggle within its upbeat, riotous sound. The indie rock colossus, feating James playing guitar, keyboard, trumpet and bass guitar, as well as assuming vocal duties, is thankfully, as catchy and memorable as it is chaotic. With whirrs of “only the noise will save me” cascading around your head long after your listen.
It is a real testament to the work of the singer-songwriter that he can craft something so personal and filled with chaos and conflict, yet so accessible and catchy. ‘Only The Noise Will Save Me’ is something that listeners can attach themselves to and draws parallels with themselves and the struggles. This is a track about music and creativity being your saviour from the holes that we can often find themselves in, and could equally be the kick up the arse that some listeners need to motivate and inspire them. Stellar work.
