An island of tranquility amidst these turbulent times, the opening track of Johnny Lloyd’s upcoming new album: ‘Cheap Medication’ is a calming and gently nostalgic listen to balm the soul.
Drifting on a bed of calypso rhythms, lilting slide guitars, fluttering birdsong, and even a panpipe solo, the track finds Johnny with his head in the clouds and discovering heavenly new platitudes as a songwriter.
Opening up about the new single Johnny says:
“Suze is a strange tale of crossed wires and infidelities. A passing portrait of an imagined event I went along with while I was writing the song. It ended up taking me somewhere I hadn’t been before musically.”
Following ‘Real Thing’ (a recent ‘Lamacq Livener’ BBC 6 Music), the track is the second and final single to be cut from Johnny’s sophomore album ahead of its release on 30th October (via Xtra Mile Recordings).
