Jamie Lenman has just debuted a video for his new song, ‘Like Me Better’, the last advance peek into his new mini-album ‘King Of Clubs’ which drops this week.
Speaking on the track, Lenman had this to say.
“‘Like Me Better’ was one of the tracks I added to the album when I decided I wanted to make something with a bit more depth than an EP. I had to go against my instincts and trust the strength of the song in order to not fuss it up or make it more complex than it needed to be – just three chords and a slow beat. I ended up whacking a big riff at the end of it cos I love big riffs but otherwise it’s a very simple tune, and probably better for it.
Lyrically it’s about things that repulse you at first but later you come to appreciate. This could apply to food or music or anything that provokes a strong reaction but in this instance it’s definitely about people and physical attraction. When people talk about having a secret crush, it’s usually about someone who looks a bit odd but nevertheless has a certain something about them. The whole record is about complex, contradictory and potentially uncomfortable feelings so it fits right in.”

His new mini-album, ‘King Of Clubs’, is set for release on September 25th 2020 through Big Scary Monsters.
