Discovery: Daniel Trakell

Daniel Trakell is an Australian indie folk artist whose music is in the mold of Elliot Smith and M Ward.

By Graeme Smith

New track Turnaround is a delicate piece which ebbs and flows between melancholy and hope. It achieves that fine balance between not being too glum but still being a tonic for those with a heavy heart. Its simply constructed but able to carry so much.

Hailing from Melbourne, Trakell has a sound that could have been born in the American midwest. His music is certainly something I can get behind and I hope you get something out of it too. Check out Turnaround below.
