New: Chad Vangaalen - Willow Tree

I’m still relatively new to songs of Calgary singer/songwriter, Chad Vangaalen, but after listening to this little piece, I couldn’t resist posting it up-- it’s too good to pass. ‘Willow Tree’ is a slice of Vangaalen’s newest upcoming release, Soft Airplane that drops on the 9th of September. A warm, fragile, folky tune, the opener track, sends quavering vocals ricocheting over lightly strummed magic of acoustic balladry. Lyrics reflect a murky tale on the quiet themes of death, rested against stripped-down yet memorable melodies put to great effect. The way Vangaalen’s song crafting are always varied and experimental, and never settling for one place at one time makes the creation of this talented tunesmith far from being insipid or just simply ordinary, nondescript tunes.

I’ve got the song on constant repeat for quite a while now; when it comes to music like this, moving on to other tracks can be hard to do sometimes.
