A bolt of nostalgic indie sunshine

Sixties pop vibes never get old, as proved by Willie J Healey and his new one 'Fashun'. The final single ahead of his brand new album, 'Fashun' is dripping with vintage hooks and warm nostalgia.

A gentle chord progression and an optimistic melody make this indie pop song a certified Beach Boys inspiration - and it hits just right. Healey's easy guitar playing fits right into this sunshine yellow world of retro positivity.

The accompanying video is a bolt of happiness too: Healey fools about on camera in a series of fetching bucket hats. It's a good-natured, genuinely funny pastiche of the fashion world.

Willie J Healey: here to save you from total 2020 despair:

On the new track, Healey said: "It was so fun, we didn’t speak about who would play what which made it really wild and I think we got ‘Fashun’ in two takes...A wild man was driving the train and we all loved the ride."
