Single Review: Dead Is Done – Luke Fraser

Singer, songwriter, troubadour, band member, Luke Fraser has done it all. The multi-talented artist finally found his own voice, going it alone and creating a debut album full of genre-bending tracks. The final single to be released from his debut, Moth Eaten Romeo, is the swirling Dead Is Done.

Taking on influences ranging from jazz and rock, indie and doo wop, Luke Fraser is not your usual pop star. His eclectic outlook and candid, self-reflective lyricism combine to create an almost otherworldly sound. Dead Is Done is a track that showcases the album in one, perfectly formed song.

On one had you could hear this emanating from a saloon bar in a western, on the other in the darkest reaches of Twin Peaks, Dead Is Done has one foot in the past and one very much in the present. Taking influence from Billie Holliday to Black Keys, Dead Is Done is a gritty, guitar driven song giving Luke the platform to present his moody, affecting vocal in a way they deserve.

Whether it be the beautiful ballad ‘Hardly Think of You at All’ or the Jeff Buckley style musings of ‘Oh What a Way to Say Goodbye’, debut album Moth Eaten Romeo bristles with a pathos many other within the genre simply cannot evoke.

Luke’s enigmatic style of music has attained support from a range of publications and radio stations including John Kennedy’s X-Posure on Radio X, Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio show, BBC Introducing Kent, Clout Magazine, Mystic Sons and many more.

Dead Is Done is taken from debut album Moth Eaten Romeo, both out now.
