Introduced last year, goldkey from the USA, releases the sad-folk single Faster on the 2nd of March.
Of a very different flow from last feature in Faster, goldkey, lowers the volume and lighting with acoustic and slide guitar taking centre stage, accompanied by a melancholic vocal, set to a rolling percussion which affords the song a diversity to it in which the audience gladly allows their amygdala to slip in to empathetic moment.
The combinations of the rippling tempo and the dour visage provides the composition with much to explore, leaving the listener to allow their mind to wander the layers as their imagination deems appropriate.

A ten track album, available directly from the Quinn Henry Mulligan website, which reflects of morose memories set to the backdrop of quiet electronica which gives the compositions depth, featured acoustic guitar and a dexterous voice that is able to navigate the approximately thirty eight minutes of the LP while capturing and delivering the narration of each of the songs.
A musician I look forward to hearing more from in short order and given plans underway that won’t be far away as Quinn Henry Mulligan is intending to release a new album each month through 2018.
The US sad-folk creator Julien Baker releases the LP Turn Out The Lights on the 27th of October.

The first song to surface from the album – Appointments, the second of the eleven tracks, is a haunting composition of strings, keys and vocal that remains in the mind for some considerable time after its completion.
