Brisbane, Australian native Conrad Sewell, 27, broke out in 2015 via Kygo’s massive, tropical house hit “Firestone” — on which he both wrote and performed. But with the release of his EP, All I Know, earlier this year, it became obvious that while the singer-songwriter can croon over any beat, on his own he’s interested in blue-eyed soul and gentle R&B — save for the occasional flourish of ’80s dance-pop.
The set’s lead single, “Start Again,” earned comparison to Sam Smith, but it’s “Remind Me,” that had Sewell most excited when EW spoke with the singer earlier this winter. “I think it’s the strongest song on the EP,” he said, adding, “I’m so not Sam Smith, it’s not even funny. I’m a soul-pop project. I’m not standing there delivering a ballad, I’m sort of strutting the stage, thinking I’m Mick Jagger. There’s a whole different element of what I’m trying to do.”
Now, EW is excited to premiere the heartfelt video for “Remind Me.” Streaming below, the clip follows and young boy walking through his favorite memories with his father — with a tearjerking-twist at the end.
