WD-HAN drop their latest track and this has so much soul covered within, that is perfect for a much-needed reflection on ‘Places‘.
The three-piece indie-rock outfit WD-HAN have been performing together since 2008 with no lineup changes and feature two married couples- including their manager-and are an example to bands all over the world, as they continue to do what they love and be successful while doing it.
This is the final song off their twelve releases from 2020 and you can feel the poignant nature of the insides of the fabric here. It has been a long journey, full twists and turns, plans changing and lessons learnt. This is a lovely song full of heart and soul, with self-awareness to bring a true message to us all when we need it most.
His voice is so calming and caring, the band feel like they are perfectly in-sync and this is a song made with special love and gives your whole body a powerful boost. This is about keeping in touch with who you used to be and who you really want to be. The excellent percussion, guitar skills and vibrant vocals all intertwine in your tired mind, helping us to reflect and never lose track of who we are deep inside.
This is that classic humbleness, layered with genuine authenticity of how life is meant to be lived and slowed down just right, so that you enjoy each moment and memory, not rush through so the beauty of what is before you is missed in a blink of an eye.
‘Places‘ from WD-HAN finds a place in our heart and is a powerful track that makes you think deeply and tap your feet at the same time.
After all, it’s all about consistency and sticking at doing what you love without giving up. There will be challenges of course but if you care about each other enough, you will find a way.
