Why do we like this?

Despite having put out a number of albums and EPs over the past six years, "Hiatus" is the first time I've come across Ian Randall Thornton, and I have to say I'm a big fan.

This is a gorgeous, folk-tinged story about letting go of the past, demonstrating Thornton's introspective lyrics and whispered vocals over building instrumentation. Beginning with a softly strummed guitar that's soon joined by a melodic piano line, "Hiatus" comes together when Thronton's understated vocals come into play.

The Virginian singer-songwriter falls somewhere between the folk-rock of Bon Iver and the emotional impact of The Tallest Man Alive with a hint of Iron & Wine. In short, this is a stunning tune with heavy themes illustrating Thornton's talent.

"Hiatus" is taken from Thornton's forthcoming album, Wide Open, and is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates good music.

Wide Open is set for release February 28.
