Acoustic Guitar Ambience

Dan Rochester has released their most pensively captivating single yet with “Falling Leaves”

Ahead of the release of their latest album “A Graveyard of Stars” which is due for release on November 22nd, up and coming guitar virtuoso Dan Rochester has released their standout single “Falling Leaves”.

There was no forgetting Dan Rochester after they first appeared on our radar with their captivating debut single “Nightfall” earlier this year. But this time, they’ve adopted a darker, almost haunted tone – for the prelude at least, as the track progresses and the instrumental arrangement becomes more eclectic and you’ll find yourself immersed within a semi-orchestral soundscape which boasts both melancholy and fragility. I’m not even ashamed to say I didn’t get to the end of Falling Leaves dry-eyed, and that’s definitely a first from a guitar-led instrumental single.

Kaycee Kersch – Hush: Soul-Shatteringly Stunning Acoustic Ambience

Desolate by Kaycee Kersch

Hush is just one of the acoustically ambient singles from the up and coming artist Kaycee Kersch’s latest album ‘Desolate’. After reading that the album was dedicated to the memory of a loved one, the palpable emotion only amplified. The pensive soul which spilled through the lyricism and haunting vocals were matched by the light, yet intricately beguiling progressions of the guitar along with the rounded arrangements of the accompanying acoustic instruments. Through the bridges each stabbing concordant note has an overwhelming way of piercing the melody and allowing the shards of harmony to hit you.

You may have your preconceptions about Indie Folk, but just for a moment, well 3:04-minutes to be exact, throw them out of the window and throw yourself into one of the most indulgently emotive tracks we’ve discovered this year.
