Why do we like this?
Melbourne's Hayden Calnin isn't far from blowing up, mark my words. The 23-year-old singer/songwriter/producer has been on our radar for a while now, with singles like "For My Help" (off his 2012 EP City) launching him into the spotlight. After being celebrated as one of Triple J's Next Crop Artists for 2013, he's spent the last 12 months working on new material, with the recently released single "Coward" the first taste of what's to come.

Calnin's music is superbly crafted. It's subtle and understated when it needs to be, before allowing itself to expand into some of the more stunning musical crescendos you'll ever find. "Coward" is a perfect example of this formula. I think what I enjoy most about this track (and Calnin in general) is the fact that he embraces the simplicity of a good tune, a difficult feat when you're fusing two genres together like he does.

"Coward" has been released alongside acoustic B-Side "Foyers," which you can grab over on iTunes.
