Any fans of Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Neil Young are sure to appreciate the magnetically mellifluous Indie Rock single “Hollywood Florida” from up and coming artist Colman.
Colman has got the anachronistic aural chemistry down to a tee with his simple, stripped bare and unadulterated melodies which sit in perfect synergy with his poised, pained, arrestive vocals. The New York-based artist’s lyrical style ensures that with Hollywood Florida you’re treated to plenty of striking imagery which will ensure that right from the first verse you are hooked into the chilling narrative. It’s not until the track fades out that you become aware that you were in almost hypnotic state listening to the tentative progressions of the single. There’s plenty of use of spatial effect to ensure that you are hanging onto every candid word.
