DEBUT ALBUM ‘SON OF THE SMITH’ OUT THIS FRIDAY – 11 MAY 2018
EARLY PRAISE FOR ‘SON OF THE SMITH’
“poetic and raw – Mcgowan tells it warts and all, and it’s his lyrics that stand out” (5/5)
“sharp tongue and playful lyrics”
“an album of emotion, guile, guts and pavement poetry, it’s a stunning debut, truly stunning.” (9/10)
Ever wondered how to make the perfect brew? Well wonder no longer as Seán McGowan guides you with a delightful, and somewhat delirious, new video for ‘Cuppa Tea’.
Though perhaps don’t take this advice too literally… In a video that quickly pans out like the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party meets Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares, we find our protagonist presenting ‘Doo With McGoo’ – a cookery demonstration programme that’s more cutting edge than is perhaps close for comfort. Brave it yourself, if you dare…
Whilst the video provides a glimpse of Seán’s endearing quality for a lightness of touch when the moment is right, lyrically ’Cuppa Tea’ sees the Southampton singer delving deeper to challenge the disproportionate work/life balance and squeezed incomes that many of us endure in modern Britain.
“”Cuppa Tea is very much me calling it how I see it. It’s my refusal to accept second best for myself or anyone else. In a world where money rules I’ll do anything and everything to even the playing field.”
A revitalising brew of smart lyricism and infectious songwriting, stirred through with a swirl of satire ‘Cuppa Tea’ is very much the perfect indicator of what’s in the bag for Seán’s debut album.
