‘X Factor’ runner-up Dean Ray’s debut single ‘Coming Back’ premiered at No.5 on last weekend’s ARIA singles chart, but ahead of the release of the singer’s self-titled debut (“journey”) album later in the month, how’s the single going to fare in week No.2? We’ll no doubt find out more about that tomorrow night when our Chart Watch drops from 6pm.
No doubt the official video, premiered today, will help re-raise Dean’s profile and the track’s fortunes in the weeks ahead.
It’s filled with all the elements needed to ensure you’re left in no doubt that Dean’s almost the anti-pop star. Long, piercing looks to camera, smoke machines at ten paces, a real band with real instruments, cigarettes and a mallet to take to a little sculpture.
‘Coming Back’ sounds a lot like a hit and a lot like a promise.
