There must be something in the water, because Scotland can’t stop producing the next big thing.
This time, it’s in the shape of Lewis Capaldi and his jaw dropping debut, Bruises.
It seems the songwriter can turn any emotion into a work of art as he molds the many feelings of a break-up (frustrated, sad, lost, desirous) into a beautifully crafted track – a testament to a past relationship. His voice beams off the minimal backdrop of sounds, echoing to its bitter end.
Capaldi may be a newcomer, but his name lurks around Glasgow already and after selling out the renowned King Tuts Wah Wah Hut venue; it’d be safe to place all bets on the artist for 2017.
