Not to be confused with Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan, Southampton’s Sean McGowan has released his ska infused new single Romance Ain’t Dead. The single also arrives complete with a brilliantly animated video.
“Romance Ain’t Dead is a song about escaping the mundane. I spent so many hours people-watching and day-dreaming whilst working in retail. Hoping for a bit of adventure and spontaneity. It’s a hard one to sing but satisfying to play!”Sean McGowan
Sean McGowan released his debut album Son Of The Smith via Xtra Mile Recordings label earlier in 2018. A year Sean surely won’t be forgetting soon, the young and talented punk poet has pin-balled across Europe performing with his heroes Billy Bragg, Will Varley, Skinny Lister, and Frank Turner; worked with coveted songwriter and producer Get Cape. Wear Cape Fly.; released a string of infectious singles including ear worm ‘Cuppa Tea’; AND even performed to a momentous SOLD OUT crowd at Southampton’s legendary Joiners venue in his hometown.
