Every time I listen to a track by a solo artist I am always amazed by what one person can do. Brisbane boy Danny Harley, aka The Kite String Tangle, is no exception. Having only started this project earlier in the year it’s easy to see that there is something special happening here. His track ‘Commotion‘ is a beautiful, chilled, electronic/pop track that sits amongst the work of Active Child and James Blake, all three holding the same vibe in their music.
What I particularly like about this track is the difference between the softness of the verse and the darkness and heaviness that is thrown into the chorus, it creates a great spike in the mood and adds textural dynamics to the overall song. The vocals are dreamy and sweet, effortlessly matching the instrumentation. I have great hope for the future of this new project and I’m keen to see where it goes.
