Dean’s new track Looks Like Me is the musical antidote the world needs right now: a song about breaking free from a confining, crushing situation. Inspired by a personal relationship, Lewis said “It was just one of those relationships that never quite came together – no matter how much I wanted it to. One night on the phone, we were living in different cities, she told me she was hanging with a guy who looked like me,” says Lewis, now looking back on the experience with a sense of humour. “So you’d rather be with someone who looks like me – than the "actual me!”
The three-time ARIA and APRA award winner initially worked up the song with new collaborator/producer Jake Torrey in Los Angeles, before putting on the finishing touches two months later in London with his long time collaborators Ed Holloway & Nick Atkinson. It stirs to life with Lewis’s compelling, almost haunting vocalisations - like a siren call, uplifted by a beating acoustic guitar. As the lyrics kick in, so does a rapid-fire hand clap, adding a percussive layer you almost feel more than hear. “One of my favourite things about this song is every time I play it to people – they immediately start moving their body. Which is a totally new experience for me as a songwriter. It’s almost like keeping one foot on familiar ground and the other into stepping off a cliff. It was a chance for me to reach for something completely different, but still be me”.
