Uk Based Gary Lucas, knows about putting things together on a string budget but he’s finally out with his first release. “Half My Life In Headphones” is the first single release from upcoming album “Demarcation” and its pre-release version was given to HPM to review.
Combining acoustic guitar, electric piano and twinned vocals, the piece is accomplished and harks back to a glamorous 1970’s light rock feel with new millennium lyrics. Aimed squarely at the mainstream of alt-pop/rock it bops through with a happy go lucky streak in the same kind of vein as a lighter Alanis gone back for some 70’s boogie rock.
Although the rest of the album is tooted to be a bit more on the darker side this is no puff piece and a quaint introduction to a man with hidden depths. Gary Lucas will be featured in an interview later this month.
