Usually, I’ll listen to music from husband and wife duos with gritted teeth, yet, there’s just something about Drakeford as I found out by immersing in the audio pleasure of checking out their latest single Stronger Than One. Their synergetic Folk Country soundscape is as compelling as it gets. Whilst Drakeford pulls most of the vocal focus in their latest single, the resonance created by Lucy-Jayne’s backing vocals creates an ethereally creeping harmony which really amplifies the sentimentality of the lyrics. Because let’s face it, most of the time, husband and wife duos create tracks that are just a little bit smug. Drakeford went in a completely different direction by using lyricism designed to empower pretty much anyone and everyone and God damn, I love them for it.
Taking inspiration from artists such as Jon Foreman, Jason Mraz and Gungor, the matrimonial duo created a timeless sound which sits perfectly in the contemporary Acoustic Folk Pop arena.
Stronger Than One is just one of the standout singles you can expect to hear from Drakeford’s upcoming release ‘The Venture’ which will be available to download & stream across all major platforms from June 8th, 2018.
