Another superb singer-songwriter emerging from Australia, Daniel Trakell has dropped a new video for his soothing song Paradise.
Offering up with Bon Iver-esque vocal lines and understated melodies, Paradise is a wonderful tune. It’s awesome easy-listening. Daniel’s stunning falsetto sits perfectly over the instrumental, which blends soft acoustic guitar lines with a brass crescendo.
Check out the fantastic the video above, directed by Rainer Kelly, who explains the inspiration behind it saying:
“The impending unearthly atmosphere and Trakell’s melancholic tone contradict the idyllic limbo he finds himself in. In homage to sci-fi films of the 80’s and 90’s, Daniel Trakell wanders alone in search of something more than the paradise that surrounds him. A symbolic and metaphorical journey about learning to submit to the timeline of life.”
