Today the enigmatic Lewis Coleman, a striking new voice in Australian music, releases his immersive new single & video, ‘Going Your Way’.
“A brooding underscore of instruments searching for an answer, a song about processing disconnect, in a pool of memory.” – Lewis Coleman on ‘Going Your Way’
Like a secret slowly revealing itself over the course of four minutes, ‘Going Your Way’, co-produced by Lewis and Yelderbert, is striking in its effortless nature and melancholic charm. The stunning offering, premiered on FBi Radio and followed by a spin on Triple R, sees Lewis ruminating on the idea of separation, processing the disconnect and all the shades in between, all the while brought to life upon layers of experimental folktronica and hints of hip hop.
Accompanying the single release is the striking video, directed by Jack Ralph in Melbourne. The clip was premiered by CLASH (UK) and made their Track Of The Day.
“Lewis’ track, accompanied by a range of his own visual ideas, gave me the jumping board to dive into a conversation on memory and personal associations we place within them. I think the close collaboration with Lewis bought about a clip that evokes exactly that – a watery pool of reflection upon which the track, ‘Going Your Way’, will draw you into our space of light & dark, where things you remembered may not have ever existed. Or maybe they really do.”
“Lewis Coleman is a bold new voice from Australia, a songwriter whose approach is resolute and unyeilding, while also offering tenderness.” – Clash
“It’s only his second release but it’s uniquely Lewis Coleman, a definite listen required.”
– FBi Radio
To celebrate the release, the 25-year-old singer-songwriter and his band will be live-streaming a full show on Sunday 24 May from 6.00pm – 8.00pm from his Instagram, @lewiscolemanmusic. The performance will also include support acts, to be announced closer to the date.
‘Going Your Way’, performed by Lewis and his band recently for Isol-aid to a wave of praise, follows Lewis’s debut 2019 single ‘Animal’.
Over the course of a few years, multi-instrumentalist Lewis Coleman has been quietly building a collection of songs; writing, playing, recording and producing them all in his inner-city Melbourne bedroom. It is hard to believe that ‘Going Your Way’ is only Lewis’s second release to date, cementing Lewis as one of the most exciting new artists and truly creative forces in Australian music.
An enchanting and unique musical force, Lewis Coleman is just getting started.
