"Why are we here? / Why do we choose fear?", LEW implores on his latest song 'Short Story Long'. The Bani Hidir-produced cut arrived into the ether earlier this morning and is, veritably, a thing of beauty.
Over a deluxe weave of guitar, piano, strings and drums, LEW gives the listener a devastating account of "how it all went wrong" with someone very close to him. Under four minutes, the song's grave majesty becomes palpable from its opening moments. Its drama builds in skyward scale towards its bridge, where LEW's voice soars correspondingly high in the mix – it will bring you to your knees. And then, it ends in a whisper.
