David West with Teardrops

Cherry On Willow

Tough Love

Released: 3rd November 2017



David West does it again. Songwriter extraordinaire, West has carved out a niche for himself shaped exactly like the man himself. On his second album this year, West transforms himself yet again into a precocious but defiant glam-rocker, channelling the licks of The Sweet or the Spiders On Mars into his songwriting. West's delicacy and lightness of touch comes in handy here, with these tales of near-love and emotional distance given a upbeat and almost carefree joy. As the new moniker suggests though, things aren't completely rosy out West, with several bittersweet lyrical touches adding a loving bite on even the most fun-sounding jams.
