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 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 sharing the songs (articles) or lists is something you could do that can really make a difference!
Braveheart - Iginis Brothers
Wrapping up this week on the Daily Song Drop we have the latest single from Nigerian Trio Ignis Brothers called "Braveheart", and it's a song that I feel is absolutely perfect to kick us into a great (mellow) weekend.
Check out the song below:
I really like the balance that "Braveheart" has: it's a song that lives thanks to it's beautiful production, as it really elevates the dueling voices by giving each of them a soft, mellow platform of looping other vocals, bits of piano, and a pitch-perfect acoustic guitar. This is one of those alternative folk songs that as soon as I heard it, I knew it not only had to be on the Daily Song Drop, but it was going to be in high rotation for me, because in it's simplicity, there is such a grounded, beautiful story, and overall atmosphere that not only makes me feel good, but has me hitting the repeat button pretty frequently. I also get some early Yellow Ostrich vibes from "Braveheart" which makes me very happy, as there's just something I really like about a song that gives me the feeling that if I were really, really lucky, I might just stumble across Ignis Brothers playing it somewhere, and it would sound every bit as wonderful.
Ignis Brothers are very new, and "Braveheart" is really their first folk song, but if you are interested in kicking back with a little funk, be sure to check out their first release "Baptized In The Funk", and keep your eyes peeled for whatever these three are up to next.
The March 2018 DSD Apple Music Playlist and the March 2018 DSD Spotify Playlist are now available! Once again, we are missing a few of tracks this month, those being "Dungeons" - Malik, "EPIPHANY" by Pizzo Da LP, and "One Night in Tokyo" - The New Division (though this is due to the fact that the new album does not drop until the end of May). Even though there are a few gaps that made constructing the list a bit tricky, I think it turned out pretty well and I hope you will check it out, either by clicking the links above, or you can always listen to the Spotify list here:

The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
