Hush About the City With His Soothing Track "Nightmare"

Upcoming artist Hush About the City aka Dan Kelsey is a vocalist/producer [songwriter/vocalist/keyboardist, Blue Sky Addicts] and is emerging from the deep and dark woods with a new, more mature sound than that of his early career. The bedrock of Hush About the City is electronic. Folded into reverb and harmony, and drawing from analog inspirations like Jonsi and Bon Iver, Dan's new record On Making Friends also forays into the realms of tempered, bleep-bloopless electronic artists like Kasbo and Duskus, who inspire the fusion between organic tone and synth recipe. Conveying his experiences over the last ten years, which include the jarring death of his mother, a deep emotional awakening, and the hard-but-good work that occurs in the shaping of the human condition, Kelsey’s ability to create a space with feeling is undeniable. “I think I’ve finally figured out how to sound the way I feel,” says Dan of On Making Friends. “It's a fresh start. This collection of music narrates the pain and confusion that accompanies the loss we can't escape in life. He feels so fortunate to be where he is with the trauma he has lived with. It's important to acknowledge that, and part of his goal with the album and his platform is to help others acknowledge who they really are and what they feel as well. Mental health for everyone, can’t be said enough. With the release of his newest single "Nightmare" which is featured on his album "On Making Friends," he projects a very nostalgic track that will certainly grasp your ears. Beginning with soft instrumentation leading onto his sweet and luscious vocals he completes the single fully. Explaining the track further it's about a failed relationship that had moments of great joy and happiness, as well as deep confusion and heartache, as seen through the eyes of an observer. To the vocals and production, this track will truly bring some comfort and maybe some peace if you have been feeling down. Being just perfect for a late night drive or alone within your thoughts.
