Having picked up a guitar for the first time in University halls, it couldn’t have been predicted that this mere emotional outlet for a turbulent student away from home would render the Indie-folk, singer-songwriter that is, Dreuw.
Through writing and performing, the now Leeds-based artist has continued to use his music to communicate with honesty, reflection and recovery; demonstrating the intimacy and tenderness of his experiences through a raw, yet ethereal, delivery that has been compared to the likes of RY X, Matt Corby and Bon Iver.
‘The attentiveness shown from society on those who suffer with mental health is hugely important, as it should be, yet we sometimes forget to consider the weight that it can place onto those closest to them. I guess it’s a feeling of isolation and helplessness that is consuming the romantic partner in this instance. They’re yearning for a sign that the love once there is not lost.’
A Dreamy and heartfelt track full of some amazing vocals which will instantly grab your attention. It has an acoustic sorrow sound, alongside meditative synth tones it really makes this track stand out and for me it gives this track a magical felling to it. It starts simply but builds and builds and is guaranteed to induce tears and awaken every hair on the back of your neck. I can imagine this song sounding great live especially in a small venue.
A fantastic track which I love and has been put together with a lot of care and attention to detail, you need to listen to this track for yourself to fully appreciate the talent and hard work that has been put into making this amazing track.
