If you haven’t heard of Oli Deakin’s Lowpines project, then perhaps this a great introduction for you. He’s perched atop a rooftop somewhere in Brooklyn, backlit by the falling (or is rising) sun. You can hear the air flowing through his lips as he delivers the vocals, providing you with an immediate closeness. I love how the video pans into his picking on the guitar, as that adds to the ornate quality of his songwriting, giving each note deserved attention. If this is the sort of tune you’re looking for, you’ll find more like-minded tracks on the new album In Silver Halides; it’s being released on February 23rd.
