Discovery: Bradley Arthur Maxwell

Over this festive period, we’ve got a chance to look back at some of the artists we got to hear this year but never shared with you. Next up is American folk artist Bradley Arthur Maxwell with his track Alone.

By Graeme Smith

Alone is an expansive and haunting track. Bradley’s voice is pleading as it delivers the heartfelt lyrics while layers of harmonious keys, strings and percussion whip up a Midwestern dust storm. It’s very clever how Bradley creates such a feeling of loneliness through music alone and I’m a little blown away by the art at work in Alone. Check it out below.
