Our Man In The Field, also known as Alexander Ellis, takes influence for his music from the world he has experienced on his travels. His gentle voice is accompanied by a brilliant band of pedal steel guitar, banjo, upright bass and drums, from which the sweet-sounding tones of alt-Americana and Caledonian Soul smoothly flow.
‘Thin (I Used To Be Bulletproof)’ is an emotionally retrospective track, intimately delivered by the soulful tones of both man and instrument. Ellis reflects on the change in his life, realising how time can be unintentionally spent living in dullness and wants us to know that there is always time left to take a risk to reclaim a happiness once had.
This new single is the first from Our Man In The Field’s debut album, ‘The Company of Strangers’, which is due to be released this September. Stream the new single from this London-based artist now:
