Lonnie Storey’s new single Found You was produced by Michael Smith (Anteros, Weird Milk, Honey Lung) and is about confessing to a friend that you fancy them. Lonnie himself comments on the track:

It’s about telling a mate you flat out fancy them out of nowhere and it all going horrendously wrong, painfully backfiring right in your ugly, crying, drunken face.

Musically, the song takes inspiration from Tame Impala’s quieter moments with soft guitars and raspy vocals.

I don’t think I’ve ever written a song where it was so hard for me to be honest, but it was important for me to deal with those feelings, and as hard as it was for me to put it all into words, it felt so easy for me to write the music to it.
