I came across some new music this week relatively unexpectedly - well not "new" per se, but new to me. Meet Slow Dancer - an Australian music project steered by Simon Okely. Yes I really have no idea why I'm on such an Australian kick lately, but whatever. I searched for chill music to listen to, and he popped up, and I was instantly captivated. Looking for something quiet, calming, and a little melancholic? Then I would strongly advise checking out Slow Dancer.
This particular track, "I Would," off his 2017 same-titled album reminds me SO MUCH of Nick Drake. Like, I know a lot of people were keen to compare Elliott Smith to Nick Drake, but this Slow Dancer song is the closest descendant to his sound I've heard. Also vaguely reminds me of Badly Drawn Boy in spots.
