On a rainy summer day, this song is exactly what I need. Australia-based Joe McKee’s “Darling Hills” is truly an impressive and soft indie folk lullaby.
As you listen, you’ll find that this track is delicate yet plush, and even a little bit melancholy. The elements that Joe McKee carefully balances are slightly sorrowful and uplifting, and completely gorgeous. The use of acoustics and string section in “Darling Hills” matched with Joe’s soft and supple vocals makes for a sadly sweet ballad that is truly a cut above the rest.
Now I can’t wait for Joe McKee’s album, Burning Boy, to release on July 1. Mark my word that this man will makes waves!
