Danielle Durack released her new record, Bashful, in January with a depth beyond expectation and a wisdom beyond her years. Recorded and produced by Samuel Rosson at wave lab in Tucson, and the Hall of Justice in Seattle, the record benefits from a larger production. Including some mesmeric elements such as vibraphone and mellotron, the additional instrumentation and bigger production allow Durack to explore here musical world in new dimensions of feeling and sound. Lyrically the search is still on for meaning and direction in life, but from a wiser, more mature vantage.
Her songs seem to speak for the gentle crowd on self-reflection and a longing for a more loving future, all the while struggling with self-worth. She speaks of lost love without cynicism, harboring a unique sense of gratitude, starting over again in different ways and all the while she crafts this mystical bedroom pop for introverts and homebodies, as much indie folk as it could be baroque pop. Danielle Durack is a fantastic new talent that your ears really need to get to know.
