1.0.8. – ‘Life Express’
Yorkshire-based artist 1.0.8. has released the magnificent single ‘Life Express’. It is an Americana release with a big heart.
1.0.8.’s soulful vocals open the release. They are hard-hitting and affecting from the get-go, filling the sonic spectrum with colour. The stripped-back instrumentation, in the beginning, lets the single shine in the light in which it was written.
‘Life Express’ is a single which evolves before the listener. Layered and varied instrumentation enter and add their unique colour to the piece.
We adore the chorus, which is memorable, and the main melody will have the listener reaching for the repeat button. 1.0.8 knows how to write a classic song, and ‘Life Express’ is no exception!
1.0.8. says about the release, “I suppose ‘Life Express’ tries to capture something of the awareness of the big clock ticking. The chaos, brilliance, excitement and knife-edge existence of life.”
He continues, “The need to appreciate every moment, whether living life in full-on party mode or experiencing the quiet, contemplative times. Each and every life, measured and remembered by the consequences of our actions.”
We are so excited to see that ‘Life Express’ is the first of a four-track EP to be released in June 2021. After hearing this magnificent single, we can not wait for the full EP to drop!
1.0.8. AKA (Andrew Stewart) is an exciting artist who is emerging as an artist to watch this 2021. He is pushing boundaries with ‘Life Express’ and is making inspiring music.
So make sure you add ‘Life Express’ to your playlist this weekend. 1.0.8. is a diverse and innovative artist who needs to be heard to be fully appreciated!
