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.

Fredrik Pihl – Crimson Skies: Pioneeringly Paced Guitar-Driven Instrumentals, What More Could You Want?

If you’re looking for a melodically sweet instrumental mix to add to your playlists, look no further than Fredrik Pihl’s latest single “Crimson Skies”. The sweet bluesy rhythm toes the perfect line between ambience and drive to curate a sound that has no necessity for vocals or lyrics.

You’re treated to a soundscape that seamlessly switches between the progressions to paint warm and inviting imagery before Crimson Skies breaks down into the intricately sublime guitar solos. Proving that when it comes to fretboard mastery, the Swedish guitar player has absolutely set the bar. As much as I adored the track, I couldn’t help but wonder how Fredrik’s guitar work would resound over a complete arrangement including vocals. Although, I’m not sure there are many vocalists with the capacity to match the soaring heights of the riffs.
