Darren Hayman Shares The Joint Account
There’s something about Darren Hayman‘s lyricism that just feels right at home; it’s literary, similar to a John Darnielle; but, it also sort of feels a bit mundane, like he’s using the perfect words simply because they’re the exact piece needed for his songwriting puzzles. If you’re not familiar, might I suggest checking out Hefner…and follow the breadcrumbs from there through the Hayman Kupa Band and various releases on WIAIWYA. I love how this song’s presented so carefully, merely some light percussion and woodwinds to accompany careful guitar picking and Hayman’s voice. The accented backing vocals from Hannah Winter and Laura K really do help to elevate the song into something quite exquisite. This song will appear on Home Time, Hayman’s new album, out May 22nd via Fika Recordings.
