Discovery: David Era

Hailing from Salzburg, Austria, David Era is an indie pop who takes on the concept of personal transformation in his new track More To Explore.

By Graeme Smith

Opening with a stripped back electric guitar riff, More To Explore quickly relaxes into a laidback groove. David’s vocals are soft but purposeful, delivering his thesis through a catchy melody. Flashes of drums, handclaps and gospel harmonies come and go in an arrangement that always keeps you guessing what will come next.

In David’s words, he started making music in order to “get along with life” and that feeling really comes across through More To Explore. For all its relatable lyrics though, what really stuck with me about it was its fresh and unexpected instrumental arrangement. It’s a track I’ll certainly be returning to. You can hear it below.
