Pop-rock singer-songwriter Will Underwood resides in Leicestershire. Returning to the scene with an emotive number called “Gimme My Heart Back”, the honesty in Will’s songwriting is some of the most pure lyrics you’ll hear all week. With the latest single being his third to date, 2019 has been a successful year for Will with previous singles getting support from BBC Introducing.
Written at a time in Will’s life where he had a case of unrequited love for a close friend, the song ended up being more about being ready to love someone again. Linked to the same feeling of Wham’s Last Christmas, “Gimme My Heart Back” details the story of asking for love back. Even though the single features a sense of vulnerability and lingers through a soundscape of emotions, Will’s maturity to dust himself off and start again is empowering. Recorded with Will’s ex-tutor from Access in Birmingham, Craig Davis assisted Will with the song and the rest is simply history. A mellow, soft rock piece that’s been crafted very well.
