‘Old Friend’ is the first single from Jules Rendell’s forthcoming album ‘Imagine’, and is accompanied by a compelling and thought-provoking video by Dominic Döring.
Produced by Feranmi Oguns (Jake Isaac, Josh Record) and Bastian Testori from OL Music, Old Friend is the follow up to the Lotusbloom EP (2014) and a new direction musically, with city-life soundscapes and gritty electronic sounds underpinning Jules’ soulful vocals in a beautifully crafted, emotive pop song.
“I wanted to make music that reflected the sounds of the city I live in, and its pressures. When I was writing for the album, I felt such pressure around me; travelling at a million miles an hour but feeling like I was getting nowhere, concerned by how much sway ‘success’ had on my self worth. So I left London to see one of my oldest friends in Manchester and I felt centred again; I remembered who I was meant to be.”
