This moody pop artist has a voice that can “Heal”. Dan Crossley brings beautiful vocals to his new song “Heal”.
The twenty-three year old singer songwriter creates a beautiful break up anthem. The catchy and powerful chorus is a welcomed swell in the mood. Rather than a super sad or slow breakup song, Crossley creates an indie-pop anthem with gorgeous use of his upper register and a catchy beat through out. The song is the story of the aftermath and come down from a relationship that you wished could have lasted forever and that raw emotion is clear through the entire song.
My personal opinion of this song is that it is an iconic heartbreak song. I love the grunginess of the guitar throughout and the drums really kick in in the chorus which make the song super catchy. The vocals are also stellar. As a new listener to Crossley myself, I can say that I will keeping an eye out for him, he really has a gift with balancing control and emotion in his vocals...similar vibe to one of my all time favorites Saint Claire.
23 year-old singer/songwriter Dan Crossley blazed into the scene last year with critically- acclaimed single releases “Feel”, “Rome” and “Talk” – amassing over 450K streams in the process. Following a notable entrance that quickly garnered press across WONDERLAND, THE LINE OF BEST FIT and CLASH MAGAZINE amongst others, the emerging, London-based artist now comes through with polished, slow-burning new releases off his forthcoming EP "Closure". Hinting excitingly at new material in a similar R&B-nuanced vein, it’s a fresh instrumental path, produced by Fred Cox (Zak Abel, Samm Henshaw) that creates a new context to Dan’s superb vocal performance – one that will be sure to continue to generate intrigue in the young artist releases his latest tracks. The first three releases off the EP have caught the attention of BILLBOARD, EARMILK and NOTION amongst other key tastemakers.
