Daz Cadwallander’s latest work ‘BROTHER’ has been out since the 24th of June. Yet already, the track from the emerging indie songwriter has trailblazed its way to nearly 1000 listens on Spotify. It has also added to a whole host of reasons the Sheffield man could have a very solid 2022.
‘BROTHER’ is an instantly enjoyable tune that is sure to get people humming with toes tapping. From the very outset, striking poppy bass welcomes the listener as glossy almost surf-rock-reminiscent guitar chords join the party.
A feedback drenched lead comes in with a touch of reverb to lay down an upbeat melody through the song, as Daz pours his heart out with a delivery we reckon is similar to somewhere between indie rock staples The Kooks and Kings Of Leon. Towards the end of the tune, the shrill lead guitar that has been chirping away, finally gets its time to shine. Cadwallander releases a raucous, tubular solo that clearly represents a trick or two that is hidden smartly up his performative sleeve.
With tracks like this, it is obvious why Daz has earned some fervent local supporters. BBC Radio Sheffield have taken a certain shine and readily promote his new releases – all the while having him appear as a special guest on multiple shows and live interviews. Additionally, traction has come from gigs at O2 Academy Sheffield as well as supporting the likes of Tom Hingley of icons The Inspiral Carpets.
Other notable highlights for Cadwallander come in the form of his first show in London, a headline slot in Sheffield at Record Junkee, TRAMLINES Festival at the Crystal Stage and Factory in Manchester amongst many more. With further singles to be released this year, and his biggest capacity show to be held in August at the Leadmill, Daz continues his gradual rise in the UK indie scene. Invest your excitement early - as this singer/songwriter only looks to be going in the right direction.
