London’s Hugo Valentine returns with poignant new single ‘Trouble’, a note on exploring one’s mental health. It follows on from his debut ‘Live Another Day’, which saw significant support from publications such as Essentially Pop, It’s All Indie and Art Will Fall. There’s no doubt that his sound is attracting listeners, as illustrated by headline shows in London and growing engagement on streaming platforms. Valentine’s songwriting is the focus, weaving an impactful narrative about men’s mental health – a topic not often discussed.
“‘Trouble’ tackles the issues of mental health in men. It is a topic rife in today’s society and with suicide being one of the biggest killers in young men is not something to be ignored. Trouble explores the idea that men find it difficult or even emasculating to talk about and expose their feelings.”
