Los Angeles has a rich history musically. During the 1960s the Sunset Strip produced the likes of The Byrds and The Doors, while the city branded as the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ has more recently seen the rise of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. LA’s latest offering goes by the name of Davis Fetter, a brand new rock and roll artist whose musical inspirations range from Chuck Berry and The Stooges to The Smiths and The Libertines.
Announcing his arrival with his new single ‘Born’, Fetter oozes swagger. It’s a song about love, but without listening closely to its lyrics you wouldn’t immediately notice. “When you’re young you look for love from those around you. As you get older you look for love from someone you can connect with. But the feeling you search for your whole life is always the same,” Fetter explains.
Musically, the track exhibits an undertone of mysterious, trilling guitar melodies beneath sharp, chilling vocals. It echoes the compositions of the likes of Miles Kane and Alex Turner, which is sure to make it popular in the UK.
