The latest addition to Heist or Hit’s stellar collection of alt-pop artists, Leeds alt-pop newcomer JWestern, aka John Gooding today shares his addictive debut single Call You Right Now.
The track is a slick and confident introduction to JWestern’s world. Sounding much more like the work of a US pop star than a Leeds based newcomer, Call You Right Now is one intoxicating, easy to listen to track perfectly suited to the quiet summer days we’re currently experiencing.
Speaking about his debut, John reveals the personal nature behind what has become quite a breezy single; ”At the time of writing the track I was going through quite a bad patch in a relationship that I knew my heart wasn’t fully in, but I didn’t know how to express how I was feeling, so lyrically the song really became my outlet. I remember lying in bed and pretty much writing all the lyrics in one night, with the chords going round and round in my head; it felt like everything had been building up in my mind for so long that it all just needed to be let out.”
“It’s me trying to come to terms with the insecurities and indecisiveness I felt within the relationship and whether the decisions I was making were the right ones. I wasn’t sure what I fully wanted but I knew I needed to give myself time and space away from everything and anything.”
