Conrad Deadly nods to Britpop in new track ‘Cults’
Seasoned musician and songwriter Conrad Leadly began 2020 with a brand new venture as Conrad Deadly. Since releasing his debut ‘Sally Lives In My Girl’s Yard’ in March, Conrad has now released his second single ‘Cults’.
Revolving around a suprisingly common yet scary predicament, ‘Cults’ explores the idea that those around you are unknowingly falling into a cult. However, this track isn’t about the cults that we usually hear about. Instead, it extends to the everyday things that can feel like a ritual themselves. “Is about the realisation that everything is a cult, from football to the bread we buy”, revealed Conrad. “The song came after a close friend was almost taken in by a cult.”
With its mix of acoustic and electric, along with Conrad’s vivacious vocal style, ‘Cults’ warmly nods to the Britpop and punk eras. Possessing a more prominent rock sound compared to his debut, ‘Cults’ shines with its punchy guitar riffs, honest lyrics and irresistable demeanor. This makes his new offering warm, rebellious and energetic. The track was produced by Dan White, ex-member of Tribes and features George Le Page on drums.
Last summer, Conrad debuted onto the festival scene with appearances at Meadows in the Mountains (Bulgaria) and Nakkefestival (Denmark). He also developed a following in South Korea, with several shows in Seoul under his belt. More recently, he has also performed at Camden’s The Hawley Arms and has supported Aflie Scully (We Are The Ocean) for the Red Light Sessions. Although live shows are on hold at the moment, there will certainly be more exciting releases from Conrad on the way!
