Lewis Bootle – Routes | Music Video
Off the back of his most recent EP which dropped in December last year, UK singer/songwriter Lewis Bootle finally premieres some a new video off his recent project, the self-directed “Routes“, the eponymously titled lead single.
The video is all encompassing of the essence of “Routes”. It feels like a compilation of travel snapshots, almost diary-like, as we are treated to picturesque scenes of nature, the countryside and more. Armed with his trusty guitar, he never misses an opportunity to play a melody or two as his musical travels take him the length and breadth of the country.
It helps that the song is light and uplifting, with keyboards and Bootle’s inimitable voice. When the bassline jumps in, it’s the acoustic soul/pop-flavored melody that takes on an infectious and effortless flow. For those who are unaware, the young singer combines thought-provoking, no-nonsense lyrics with infectious pop melodies to great effect. Best described as a mix of The Clash, Jamie T and Frank Ocean.
