George Lewis Jr. welcomes Yours Truly into the backyard of his home in Silver Lake to play “Run My Heart”, a standout from his new album, Confess.

Inspired by a motorcycle accident George was involved in a few years ago, Confess is suitably dramatic & exhilirating. Referencing the 80s New Wave close to its creator’s heart & with a cinematic ambition, the album is personalised by a lyrical concern that reveals Lewis Jr. to be the Don Juan with a conscience; louche, charming & melancholic in equal measure.

The band is also getting ready to kick off their Ton Up tour through N. America. They have also confirmed two UK dates at the end of the year - Sound Control, Manchester on 31st October + Brixton Electric, London on 1st November. Scroll down for dates.
