James & Paul share their new single, "Dead or Alive"

Coming out of Morpeth in Northumberland is duo James & Paul and just last week saw them share their new single, "Dead or Alive". "Dead or Alive" acts as their third release of 2023 and it's most certainly an upbeat tune with some sweet harmonies.

A playful indie-rock tune to really get stuck into.

Opening up with a drumbeat and a jangly guitar it's clear to see that James & Paul wrote this to be a charming indie-rock track with some slight nostalgic elements. I feel nods towards the likes of The Smiths and even The Courteeners with the beat of the percussion.

Vocally on point and it's mixed just perfectly enough that new listeners can easily sing-along to it on the second play.
