Elliott Joseph has just unveiled a brand new single entitled A Song For The Summer and we bet you can’t guess what it’s about. It’s a feelgood blend of original folk-rock built on a foot-stomping rhythm, meaning that it’s without a doubt one of the best summer songs that will roar into your ears this year.
A Song For The Summer is about not letting the good times die. Elliot took inspiration from trips to America and watching the likes of Dave Matthews and his band perform whilst having an unbelievable time drinking and partying late into the night. Further inspiration came from watching Noah and the Whale headline a festival and hearing lead singer Charlie Fink say “It might be September, but we’re still here and summer’s not over yet.” After throwing memories like these into a song, we are left to enjoy a glorious soundtrack that fits perfectly with warmth and sunshine.
Elliott has a huge love for American country music and is of English, Irish and Scottish heritage. All of this is reflected in his music and it’s really something special listening to such a variety of styles in one song. From the lively fiddle to the distorted guitars, you’ll be engaged with this one immediately. Topped off by crashing drums and Elliott’s distinctive vocal tone, A Song For The Summer has everything you need for a true summer anthem.
With an EP out on the 25th August entitled Wild Atlantic Heart, Elliott Joseph will remain firmly fixed on our radar and he should remain on yours as well. Listen to A Song For The Summer below and be sure to keep up to date with his social pages here.
