Comment
This week’s Essential New Tune comes from a guy who has been steadily building his reputation over the last eighteen months. He’s been pretty prolific when it comes to releases and we think this is going to take his career to another level, plus he’s got a great live show going on as well. Here on this new tune he teams up with the one and only AlunaGeorge, the track is called ‘Hurting’, he’s British, he’s one of our own, and he’s doing really well in America, his name is SG Lewis.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 31:50 mins here.
