SG Lewis has spent the last near-decade quietly becoming one of the hottest pop properties around in demand by everyone from Dua Lipa to Elton actual John. On the evidence of his swish and stylish second album ‘AudioLust & HigherLove’, it’s easy to see why. The man is obscenely good at the business of pop music.
The record is an effortlessly fun odyssey through his vivid musical imagination taking in spacey funk on ‘Infatuation’, easygoing soft rock on ‘Lifetime’ and a lovely bleepy bloody ballad in ‘Honest’, which shows that he can do both vibes and emotions in equal measure.
There’s always a supreme confidence about SG Lewis. The sort of confidence found in someone who knows they can do it all. Despite the supremely satisfying feeling of an album that is incredibly easy to listen to – very bobby and super poppy, there’s still a feeling that this is SG Lewis just gently easing into his proper album making pop star era, and there’s still more to come. What a prospect that is.
