Track Of The Day - Willie J Healey - Lazy Shade Of Pink
At a time when the indie landscape seems weighed down by its own past, Willie J Healey’s idiosyncratic alternative-pop seems curiously invigorating and subversive. The 22-year-old singer and DIY-producer has cut an exciting path with his unpretentious songwriting: his artful approach to his craft aiming towards heroes like The Modern Lovers, Bruce Springsteen and Modest Mouse, but far from being an obvious pastiche, Healey’s evolution over the last couple of years has seen him find a distinctly refreshing, occasionally-eccentric musical voice. 'Lazy Shade of Pink' is the latest offering from Willie's recently-completed debut album, with the track. Speaking on the single, Willie explains it was "written a while ago, and recorded at my house. I've always wanted to have a song with a drum solo in it." 
 
The results feel warmly familiar and strikingly relevant in their celebration of youth, and the modern problems of young manhood; of isolation, the misfit, and escape. Willie started writing songs in earnest having left college, when he worked for his dad as a plasterer for a couple of years whilst travelling around his everybody-knows-everybody town in a battered old limo by way of eye-catching transportation. Yet it’s a sound which is suitably panoramic, and pan-Atlantic: equal inspiration comes from cult film classics, The Girl Next Door, and subverting small-town tedium into wry and charismatic lyricism. It’s true to himself, constructed by himself, and mostly for himself, but it’s a sound that Willie JHealey looks set to drive further forward still.
