Kev Sherry Shares New Single ‘Wasted Days’

Kev Sherry, singer for the critically acclaimed four-piece Attic Lights (Island RecordsElefant Records), makes a welcome return as he prepares to unveil his indelible new single Wasted Days, which is out now having been released  27th March 2020.

Alongside his backing band ‘Low Fruit’, Kev has produced an uplifting, earnest piece of jangle-pop music juxtaposed with weighty, reflective personal lyrical content. Combining the snappy melodies of contemporary acts like Courtney Barnett and Alvvays with the yearning simplicity associated with classic bands such as The Lemonheads and The PastelsWasted Days sees Kev challenge the banal, indistinctive sound of modern indie guitar music by reconnecting with the sound of shambolic, loose guitars, catchy melodies, bare production and raw recording.

Collaborating with renowned producer Paul Savage (MogwaiThe DelgadosFranz FerdinandArab Strap), and using a guitar borrowed from Tracyanne Campbell (Camera ObscuraTracyanne & Danny) anda bass guitar borrowed from Francis MacDonald (Teenage Fanclub)Wasted Days is taken from his forthcoming album Foxy Orthodoxy. Having written for New Statesman, created the graphic novel Warpaint and novel Here Be The ApplesFoxy Orthodoxy is an extension of the themes Kev explores in his written work – anarchism, feminism, gender politics, the ideological culture wars, the cult of personality and the hypocrisy of the human heart.

Kev’s solo project follows on from the success garnered by Attic Lights with the band appearing on HBO’s DivorceMTV’s Teen MomBBC’s The Culture Show, Hairy Bikers, The One ShowSportsceneChannel 4’s Wife Swap, Come Dine With Me and ITV’s Scotsport and STV News. He has also collaborated with international artists including Bjorn Yttling, Cerys Matthews and La Casa Azul and his songs have been remixed by Mogwai, Camera Obscura, The Fratellis, Jim Noir and The Vaselines
