New Music: Garvie – Real Life

London-based alternative pop artist Garvie is becoming a familiar (pixelated) face on this blog. We’ve been covering his music since early last year, sharing his bright, emotive pop and 8-bit visage no less than five times now. His latest is called Real Life.

By Graeme Smith

In his own words, Real Life is an anti-tech anthem. It hooks into that concern we all have that we spend too much time on our phones or on the Internet, with an invitation to spend a little time in the real world with real relationships. Despite its lyrical message, there’s a lively and bright feel about the track and Garvie’s passionate vocals prove once again to be a highlight.

Production for Real Life comes from Scoobert Doobert. You can give it a listen below.
