Facing Dullness is perhaps the best new song I’ve heard so far this year. It takes a moment to really kick in, the overall sound is fairly familiar – warm and indie-pop-like in nature, but once you really hear it; you can’t un-hear it.
An incredible songwriter, this album underlines that in a professionally crisp & consistently interesting way. Easily up there with the best releases of 2018 so far.
A huge track, the music feels like blues-rock, gritty & infectious, energizing, yet there’s a certain effect & tone to the harmonica that moves the whole thing over into some sub-genre of electronic rock & roll.
Once you adjust to the rhythm & relevance of these sounds, you witness & connect with the songs – the melodies, the riffs, the raw emotion of the lyrics.
