Versonic are an indie rock band from Ashtead, just outside London. Their debut album, ‘Brand New Man’, is set for release on 1 March this year, and the title track is out now.
‘Brand New Man’ was written at the beginning of 2017 by singer-songwriter Stephen Connor, who used it to start a project which kept him focused throughout the year. A deeply personal track, it was written as the impetus for change. The track was released on the 1st of January as to prepare and motivate him to continue new lifestyle changes.
A guitar led rock song, ‘Brand New Man’ features a drumbeat underpinning Connor’s light vocals. There’s a pleaing backing vocal behind the chorus in the final quarter of the track. It reminds us of 80s artists like The Hoodo Gurus, and will appeal to a wide spectrum of listeners and musical tastes.
‘Brand New Man’ was produced by the up and coming Michael Charman, and mastered by Pete Maher, who’s known for his work for Noel Gallagher, U2, Jack White, The Rolling Stones, and The 1975, among many others. The majority of the tracks from the album have been written by Stephen Connor.
