Danny Barwick is an Australian singer who tells sad stories through the medium of experimental jazz.
By Graeme Smith
First up, a disclaimer: Danny Barwick will not be for everyone. However, fans of Radiohead or Nick Cave will find some sorrowful familiarity in Barwick’s style. Room 201 oozes with the claustrophobia that comes from living in a prison of your own making, the story unfolding through Barwick’s smooth and haunting vocals. Accompanying himself on piano, Barwick has created a beautiful piece of music here.
A simple yet effective music video accompanies Room 201. You can check it out below.
