Lifted from his new EP ‘No Post On Sundays’, Conrad Ashton’s single ‘Like No One Else Do’ provides upbeat and vibrant listening, packed with an acoustic-style pop melody, and Conrad’s indie-rock inspired vocals. The raw and twangy instrumental, topped with heartfelt lyrics make for an uplifting and quirky track, producing a buoyant, easy listening piece. Conrad’s effortless storytelling is both straight-talking and sincere, and his individual style shines through in ‘Like No One Else Do’.
Speaking about his new track, he said, “‘Like No One Else Do’ was written about someone special who I felt fairly strong about and haven’t had that feeling since it was the only time in my life where I would have put someone ahead of my goals as a musician. But some things aren’t meant to be and you have to respect that and respect life’s plan and, in hindsight, it is a good thing some stuff doesn’t happen or work out like you may want.”
Conrad’s style is reminiscent of artists such as Billy Bragg and Frank Turner, and his engaging persona really underpins the style of his music. Merging elements of both classic and contemporary, Conrad’s sound is stylistically honed to something ever intriguing. Following on from some great track successes over the past few years, Conrad’s new offering is one to surely grab attention.
