luke barham AKA uncle luc of surrey, UK is an experienced musician, having played in a band for ten years. 'humblebrag' represents his first outing as a solo artist in the singer/songwriter mold, and it delivers on catchy, introspective lyrics, reflecting his journey from the UK to the US and back again and his struggles in the business of independent music.
sonically, the album has moments of quiet folksiness, but my favorite parts are the big, memorable brit-poppy tunes that suit uncle luc's wry vocal delivery like lindsay's old army coat on 'freaks and geeks'. check out one of those big poppy tunes, "i write", as a preview below.
the album is out next monday on super fan 99 records.
