Exploring the concept of a man with two personalities. Bert’s upcoming track stems from the idea of someone having two sides to them. Personalities that change depending on their situation and surroundings, whether it be personal, at work, in politics or anywhere in life.

Using imagery to build the narrative for the single Bert has adapted each line of the song to correlate with a specific image in mind, using these images to create thoughts and ideas that someone might have when interacting with someone who has two personalities. The song in part can be used as a warning, but also an exploration and description of a fictional character with real-world inspirations.

‘Half Man Half Villain’ once again shows off Bert Brett’s ability to create catchy and fresh songs. Using a mixture of guitar tones that are reminiscent of Alex Turner, pairing them with vocal hooks that would hook any Jamie T fan in an instant. This punchy track is bound to get anyone’s head moving from start to finish.
