Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
The Propagandist - -ness
New York based, Indie "storytelling" pop duo -ness released their debut album whatever's unclear to you, is the same for me came out last year and showcases some interesting, and very well crafted songs. My favorite is "The Propagandist", a track which has an excellent progression to it, utilizing a plethora of instruments, working on a couple of different tempos, to go along with (what I am coming to discover) the trademark intelligent, and thoughtfully built lyrics.
Give "The Propagandist" a listen below:
-ness have a really cool sound; I really enjoy the balance that "The Propagandist" has when it switches instruments, and tempos, yet always creates a sound background for the lyrics (and vocals). It is actually hard to believe that -ness is a duo...
The concept of "storytelling pop" is intriguing to me, and I hope that you give it a shot, and I know I will continue to dig into whatever's unclear to you, is the same for me, as it is (so far) one of those albums that seems to unfold more and more, as you continue to listen to it.
It's Monday, and you know what you need? the Dec 16/Jan 17 Playlist!
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
