"Better Man" by Alan Chan with Adam Wedd

Has post war London ever looked more desolate or promising than it does in Alan Chan and Adam Wedd’s, “Better Man”?

Wonderful video with great ambient sound and pictures of a lone young man exiting the “Tube”.

I view the song as hopelessly optimistic. Irreducible.

London will rise again and so will Alan Chan in his quest to be a “better man”. His honey dipped voice, nuanced like Van Morrison and his “like no one is watching” dancing calls to mind “Future Islands”. Allan has a breakout moment on this well produced song and video.

Check it out. Despite the sad overtones the song will make you happy!
