Alcester folk singer releases latest single to high praise

Redditch Editorial 13th Jun, 2024   0

LIVERPOOL-based singer-songwriter Euan Blackman from Alcester has released his second single from his upcoming EP Thunderstorms.

The single, ‘I Don’t Think About It (Too Much)’, came out on May 31, and marks the beginning of a monumental year for Euan.

Working closely with award-winning producer and mix engineer Tarek Musa, he expects to release his first EP for Ripe Records in the summer.

Euan said: “‘I Don’t Think About It (Too Much)’ is all about avoidance.

“It’s probably the closest I’ve got to writing something that kind of represents my generation.

“There’s so much to worry and stress about nowadays – this song is an anthem for pushing it away sometimes.

“Producing this track, I wanted to get into a more poppy/electronic world. It’s like a mix of The 1975, The Blue Nile with an Elliott Smith guitar part.

“The whole purpose of this EP is to create a bigger, more welcoming world for my music to live in.”

Euan’s work has been supported by BBC Radio 6 Music, Billboard, Time Magazine, and consistently playlisted by Spotify UK, Apple Music and Amazon Music.

He has also been praised by many of his heroes including Radio 1 Tastemaker Jack Saunders and Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda.

The single is available from all streaming services including Spotify and Apple Music.
