I wrote about the wonderfully haunting "Barabas" by Dan Southward a few months back, and have been listening to his SoundCloud religiously since then.
Southward creates beautifully sincere music, which touches the listener to the core. Although this track is quite old, I find the acoustic guitar, mingled with a brief moment of electronic production, to be beautiful in its simplicity.
"Demise" is a melancholy, honest folk track which carries a pensive tone in its poetic story, all told in a deep, unaffected voice.
Hoping to hear more from Dan Southward in 2016! In the meantime, he appears to be playing shows around Melbourne town, so be sure to catch him live.
