Continuing his run of killer singles, Westerman has returned with the excellent ‘Easy Money’. Blending off-kilter 80s inspired synths and loose guitar strums, it sees the songwriter’s slow-burning minimalism blossom into a lo-fi ballad built for bothering the charts. Operating in the woozy intersection between R’n’B and dream-pop, it’s yet another ethereal cut from the Blue Flowers signee.
Arriving ahead of dates with Dirty Projectors and an EP slated for release later this year, don’t expect him to dabble in lo-fi for much longer – the charts are ready for a new prince of pop. His unique brand of pop is more than up to the task.
