With a charming drawl, Rainn Byrns’ debut album ‘New In Town’ isn’t one for following the crowd. That’s in his credit, too.
Switching between wry humour and warm reminiscence, it’s lo-fi bedroom pop with a crackling, timeless edge. ‘Big’ muses on the realities of trying to make it in the big city, watching others look to accelerate ahead, while ”Never Ending Story’ oscillates between hopes and fears, trying to find the positive in the daily grind.
Recorded using analogue techniques, entirely by himself in his Peckham bedroom, there’s little high tech or fancy about Rainn Byrns, but that’s the point.
