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. If you enjoy the track, please share it, so we can keep on talking about great new music!
(You Will) Change - NIEVES
Wrapping up this week on the Daily Song Drop we have the lead single off of Scottish Alt-Folk Rock band NIEVES' debut album Exist and Expire called "(You Will) Change".
Check the track out below:
Emotional, and heartfelt, "(You Will) Change" is a song driven by its' gentle, cinematic build up to a burst of rock energy that feels earned. Brendan Dafters' vocals carry a lot of the weight of the track, amplified beautifully by a combination of forlorn synth, Herre de Leur's pitch perfect piano, and a commitment to a tempo and tone that creates a gorgeous atmosphere that I just want to lose myself in....making this an awesome opening track to an album.
If "Change" strikes your fancy, I would imagine that you would have the same feeling I did about needing to hear the rest of Exist and Expire--it is a lush, lively album that stays grounded in the darker tone established by this first track, but does not grow repetitive, rather iterating on the setup of "Change" in cool ways.
The February 2018 DSD Apple Music List and February 2018 DSD Spotify List are available! These ones where admittedly tricky as it is a short month (meaning there are fewer songs for me to build the set with), and we are also missing a couple from the lists: "Coward's Castle" by Monti and "highr" by buuzey. However, I have to say that I do enjoy the playlist this month, and I hope you will check it out, either by clicking the links above, or you can always listen to the Spotify list here:
If you enjoy the TGF Playlists, it would help us out a lot if you could share them with folks, as with the new algorithms on Facebook and Instagram, TGF is having to fight harder for traffic, so if you enjoy the DSD, sharing the songs (artlices) or lists is something you could do that can really make a difference!
