Daniel Heffington’s latest track Shipwrecked Souls is an ethereal piece of music, it’s zealous energy barely fits within the confines of Indie Pop Rock. The track progresses from an intimate tentatively paced introduction that lures you into the snares that are riddled throughout this track before it leads you to an anthemic hit. The Virginia based singer songwriter humbly boasts the unique gift of being able to create a perfectly resonant universal sound that makes you fall in love with his energy before you even get to the chorus. It sounds like ridiculously high praise, yet it’s the plaintive truth.
There’s a slight reminiscence to acts such as Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, Coldplay and Kings of Leon but if truth be told, I haven’t heard such momentous rhythm alongside such succinct soaring harmonies in a long time. And that’s all before you get to the sensational vocals and poignant lyrics.
