When Dean Lewis’s aching, enigmatic debut single “Waves” seduced music lovers across the planet last year – earning the Sydney-based singer-songwriter high rotation on Triple J and a place on influential digital playlists worldwide – the sudden success was accompanied by a delicious sense of irony. The song’s perfect balance of intimacy and intensity, married to the honesty that lights the dappled regrets Lewis articulates, helped it connect immediately.
Fortunately fans of “Waves” won’t have to contend themselves with one song. Inspired by the instant international response to his first single, Lewis has spent the next 12 months in a creative frenzy, writing and recording more than 100 songs, the first tantalizing taste of which comes in the form of new EP, Same Kind of Different.
Building on some of the wisdom gleaned from those sessions, Same Kind of Different blends the idyllic atmosphere of the countryside sessions that produced “Waves” with the whirlwind of experiences Lewis has enjoyed since. Along with “Waves”, Lewis recorded one of his favourites “Let Go” with the duo and on a free day nearing Christmas, Holloway and Lewis decided to record a cover of Amy Shark’s “Adore”.
