James Edgar - Pretend
It's a track that could play next to Shawn Mendes any day of the week.
This review was originally published in May of 2018.
From Jigsaw Records artist James Edgar we have the new single Pretend. It deals with the reality of a broken relationship, when someone stays only because leaving is too hard. I think we have all been there, and this feels like a moment to appreciate the power of songwriting to express and deal with difficult issues.
With a strong pop sound and some top-notch songwriting, the simple power of Edgar's voice and lyrics are able to shine. It's a track that could play next to Shawn Mendes any day of the week.
