Newcastle-based singer-songwriter Callum Pitt has a distinct knack for forging big, bright melodic folk-pop tunes, with an authentic heart. Early bedroom demos received play from the likes of BBC 6 Music and saw him supporting the likes of Isacc Gracie. Pitt also secured a spot at the primary North East’s music festival for upcoming talent, Evolution Emerging last year. Since then, the artist has been knuckling down on new material in the studio. His debut single ‘You Better Sell It While You Can’ is due for official release on the 24th of February via Kaleidoscope.
It’s a brilliant introduction to a young talent with bags of potential, massive in scope and freely channelling the dreamy Americana of The War On Drugs and Bon Iver’s sparkling clean production in its rich ambient soundscapes. The track wanders through various genres in an effortless woodland stroll of casually strummed chords and perfectly soothing vocal melodies which lay bare Pitt’s emotions. It’s an evolving piece of uplifting indie folk that eventually explodes into an anthemic, payoff that’s worth the wait.
