Only Real returns with a music video for his new single ‘Pass The Pain’. It’s swirling, variegated psychedelia, underpinned by a unique drawl that allows his highly distinguishable word play to pour out and run all over his befuddling guitar lines.
Only Real first emerged on LuvLuvLuv Records with his debut ‘Days In The City’. This was followed up earlier this year with his first single on Harvest Records with ‘Cadillac Girl’, a track recorded in Atlanta by Ben H Allen.
The last few months has seen Only Real work on his debut album which is due out early next year. It’s been produced by Ben H Allen in Atlanta and Dan Carey (Franz Ferdinand, Childhood) in London.
