Love can be a tricky game at the best of times. But if you’re the one with the crush, and the object of your affection is sending mixed signals? Well. That can usher a very special kind of wide-eyed insecurity. Luckily for us, indie-folk-pop maestro Chris Watts has woven those wobbly-footed feelings into a bright, snappy tapestry: his new single ‘Let Go’.
No text back? Just bop your head around. She complimented you, then ignored you the next day? Clap your hands along to the beat. Really unsure where it’s going, but not able to let go? Chuck on some Chris Watts. He gets it.
Watts’ debut ‘Back Down’ – the titular single off his first album – premiered on triple j. He’s since shared the stage with the likes of Georgia Fair, has wowed crowds at Etihad Stadium and St Kilda Festival, and was part of MTV’s Brand New alongside Tkay Maidza, Cosmo’s Midnight and Carmada.
With an upcoming single launch for ‘Let Go’ at Melbourne’s Shebeen on 26 March, a video to accompany the track on the way & much more on the horizon, 2016 looks to be Chris Watts’ year.
