Lloyd James Fay: I like to let songs write themselves and then reflect or infer what the influences were

Introspective troubadour Lloyd James Fay returns with the release of his EP Fake Depth, which opens with new forthcoming single Idiocracy.

How we have never been more connected yet at the same time so divided as people silo into echo chambers and fall foul of cognitive biases.

Trying to capture the zeitgeist of this moment where a celebrity narcissist is the most powerful person on the planet because of Twitter. And from a personal point of view, my journey from being an internet utopian to a dystopian.” Fey spoke with The Fountain in more depth about the singles, Hypocrisy and Every Time I’m Wrong in more depth.
