‘You and Me’ is the first single to be released from new Glasgow artist Craig Irving following his debut EP release on April 3rd.
recalling the indie-pop sound of Irving’s contemporary influences such as The 1975 and LANY but with a rocky edge, ‘You and Me’ features an instantly catchy chorus coupled with a strong beat and inventive guitar lines.
Following on from Irving’s debut EP release ‘When I First Met You, which tackled the kind of self-love involved in knowing when to quit a failing relationship, ‘You and Me’ delves into the exploration of a new relationship and the emotional tests that can bring. Irving states: “You and Me comment on a situation that most of us experience in our lifetimes, not knowing where we stand or if we’re confident in both our own or someone else’s feelings”.
Irving was raised in the Scottish Highlands and spent his formative years lending guitar and vocals to some of Scotland’s top folk acts, winning a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award (2015) – among many others – for former outfit Talisk, and embarking on multiple worldwide tours with six-piece Gaelic band Mànran.
In 2019 Irving began following his passion to make “the kind of music I’ve wanted to create for a long time”, indie-guitar music with heartfelt lyrics and memorable melodies.
Last year he released the solo singles Heart, Fall and Begin Again, with his new musical direction described by music critics as “savvy and seasoned” (The Vinyl District).
‘You and Me’ is released on 5th June.
