Dublin’s K.K Lewis returns today with her latest, dreamy bedroom-pop number, ‘First Bus Home’. The single follows closely on from her first release of the new year, ‘Good Enough‘ which tackled themes relating to self-confidence, body dysmorphia and toxic beauty standards. Influenced by the likes of Amy Winehouse, Arlo Parks and Celeste, the sincerity in KK’s deeply personal lyrics always remain at the forefront of her music.
For her latest offering, the young-singer songwriter touches on themes of teenage love; the pursuit of it and the embarrassment and anxiety that often surrounds it. Delivered with a distinctly husky vocal tone, ‘First Bus Home’ is a track that many will resonate with for its sincere and frank portrayal of puppy love and the trials and tribulations that come along with it. KK’s delicate vocals wrap around dreamy guitarwork and a minimalist beat, set against a carefully crafted, sparse production style, the result is an undeniable teen, bedroom-pop hit.
‘First Bus Home’ is taken from the forthcoming EP where each track will explore a different version of the artist, revealing a new story and a new sound.
Listen to K.K Lewis – First Bus Home
“The song captures a memory in Dublin City in the early hours of the morning waiting for the buses to start running again after a night out. It depicts my later teenage years and explores
how isolating love can feel and how quickly these emotions can overtake you and leave you feeling completely lost. Listening to this song now, is like reading an excerpt from my diary, I can visualise the memory in my head so clearly and even though it was such a confusing and lonely time in my life, I can look back now with some clarity.”
