Lucas Watt returns with ‘Kind of Funny’
Back in April, Leeds singer-songwriter Lucas Watt released the exhilarating ‘I Don’t Feel Fine’. He has now returned with the warm summer bop ‘Kind of Funny’.
The new single explores the fickle nature of our generation. Full of paradoxes and complications, ‘Kind of Funny’ looks at a world where we are quick to judge those around us, but also are blindly accepting of celebrities’ actions. The troubles of fake news are also explored, especially in situations where it is indeed false or misleading information that drives our opinion of one another.
With its sunshine-laden rhythms and warm keys, ‘Kind of Funny’ shines as a summer anthem that both makes you smile and ponder. Watt’s soaring vocals particularly take centre stage in the chorus, where the instrumentation erupts into a crescendo. The saxophone solo is also a lovely touch!
Up to now, Lucas Watt has supported the likes of Larkins, Shed Seven and Giant Rocks. He is inspired by artists such as Sam Fender, Sundara Karma, Tom Grennan and The Night Café. His 2019 single ‘dirty teens’ was warmly received, garnering over 11,000 streams on Spotify.
