Loaded Gun is about falling for someone you know you shouldn’t – that femme fatale you know is going to burn you out. The protagonist in the song claims to be advising the next sucker not to fall in love, but it’s clear he’s done so already and it’s too late for him.

Genre: singer-songwriter, From: UK, for fans of: Ten Tonnes, Declan McKenna

Welsh singer-songwriter Otto has recently dropped his debut EP Post which was recorded in an old converted Post Office in Wales.
