Josef Salvat – “Hustler”

London-based singer Josef Salvat hits us with a delicate ode to the trials and tribulations of a man with “the heart of a hustler playing a dangerous game.” Falling just the right side of twee, Salvat mixes clean-cut, pop-leaning choruses with direct, much darker lyrics, such as the wryly observed opening couplet “It’s not easy on my bed sheets/ It’s not easy on my nerves.” With a couple more really standout lyrics in “Hustler,” and spacious, piano-led production to boot, Joseph Salvat is certainly doing something interesting within the pop format.

“Hustler” is out June 10, and you can check out the slightly raunchy artwork above.

    Thanks – I’ve updated. He did live in Sydney for some time, but as you point out, he’s now London based.
