Billionaire - Tammy Paints Pictures/Trustees

Billionaire is the creation of London Whitechapel's John Sterry. The very English observations "condemning the idolisation of the rich and famous" sit comfortably over some quite gentlemanly, minimal accompaniment.

You may have heard Sterry before, fronting indie-popsters Gaoler's Daughter. Now on his own, he says he imposed "strict limitations" on himself, restricting the sound he could create. 'Tammy...' with the
stripped-back steely guitar, bubbling bass and relaxed, shuffling drums, it's a quietly-revealing listeners' band that feels as though the scenes he paints are slowly moving in black-and-white.

'Tammy Paints Pictures/Trustees' is one of two tracks available now on Billionaire's Soundcloud and a single release is expected Summer 2014. More info at www.billionaireofficial.co.uk.
