Singer-songwriter AJ Wander has been speaking about the release of his latest single, Eye To Eye. The track is an intensely personal exploration of the heartache that comes when relationships come to an end, and came out on April 14th.
“I wrote Eye to Eye whilst sat on my bed in the middle of the night last year,” AJ explains. “My girlfriend and I were fighting a losing game and we couldn’t pretend to be OK anymore. It was a moment of realisation, we we’re broken, and the pieces couldn’t be glued back together.”
Eye To Eye was the result of a long period of writing, enforced by the Covid-19 lockdown. Before this, AJ had been playing covers at various piano bars and hotels around the UK. However, the London-based artist recently signed a a record deal with Elevation, as well as a publishing deal with BDi Music, marking him out as one to watch for this year.
