‘Bryan’s Drying Up’ is the first single to be taken from Essex songwriter Francis Neve’s debut album. Amidst jangly guitars and melancholy boy-girl harmonies, Neve reflects on the trials and tribulations of entering a relationship in wistful fashion.

This introspective slice of lo-fi pop is the opener on The Second Time We First Met, a record that documents the high of meeting someone special for the first time and the bitter, acrimonious end to the affair, plus everything in between. Stream the entire album and download a free track here.
