Words - Kim Holder
San Francisco is a solo project from welsh singer-songwriter Iwan Grant. He is studying popular music in Leeds and is now ready to take his alt-indie/rock career to the next level. His songs are guitar-driven and have traditional indie sounds as heard in his first two releases ‘Just Friends’ and ‘(Not) Sentimental’.
'Night Drive' is a new release from San Francisco. It is a track that is about heartache and conveys real emotion about a situation between lovers and not having the chance to make a relationship work. This would be a relatable song for many people, As this is a situation that can be very common and is a cause of heartache for many.
“If you give us both a chance” are lyrics from this song. These lyrics reiterate the emotion of just wanting their partner to give them both a chance and making the relationship work. Making this song heavily relatable for many people going through heartbreak like this. I think that this track is very catchy and I absolutely love it. It sounds like your traditional indie song, which is a genre that I absolutely love and Iwan conveys the emotion of this song very well. It may be upbeat but the lyrics are heavily relatable and are heartfelt. Iwan’s voice is also a joy to listen to.
