Barwick’s “Room 201” is upbrought on the heels of jazz, but favoring also drips of textured soul and electronica.
The thrumming shadows of melancholy accompany one’s ears. The second single off “The Tigers” EP is Danny Barwick’s sound of breathing. Vocals traveling you, thousands of miles bringing to mind meticulous haunting music of James Blake, Anthony & The Johnsons (buzzing wise) or King Krule.
The Melbourne-via-Perth singer and producer locks into such bedroom-music shapeshifts using elicit harmonies of the soul, and hypnotic piano/drum programming. It really is a truthful timbre, accompanied by an aesthetic video. Hammering out a “Crunch” from Charles Bukowski, reels off images of an arising talent. Australia is far away from us, however, if Barwick falls near, catch a flawless cathartic spectacle of him live.Buy the track here
