SINGLE REVIEW - REWIND BY DANIEL JACKLIN
‘Rewind’ is the latest single from Daniel Jacklin, a folk/americana singer and songwriter, originally from Suffolk. This track was a highly anticipated release from his fans, being firmly placed in his catalogue for over a year. Daniel’s influences include Father John Misty, City & Colour and Kacey Musgraves, the likes of which can be heard peppered throughout this delightful track. ‘Rewind’ is the follow up to Daniel's debut single 'Wine', which received wide acclaim from both the university at which he studies, and his loyal listeners.
This new release follows a trip to Nashville, where Daniel met writers behind hits such as ‘Butterflies' by Kacey Musgraves, and heard 'Livin' on a Prayer' by the original writer of the hit. He also got to perform at a Writers Round alongside other up-and-coming Londoners and Belmont University students.
‘Rewind’ depicts Daniel's state of mind, figuring out what and who he needed in his life at the time. In his material you can expect to find pretty lyricism, and this track does not disappoint.
Favourite lyric: ’The one with the halo tells me its okay though, to leave when I feel sour. And I wish that I could rewind’.
Its hard to ignore the beauty of the production of this track. Working with Louis Takooree, this track really splashes colours of Americana, between stunning interwoven layers of vocals, building up throughout the song to really support the lead vocal, and the crisp banjo and handclaps carefully placed in the mix. Daniel has a great working partnership with Takooree, and his debut single ‘Wine’ had a similar charm, creating a wholesome ‘singalong’ feel with its infectious vibe.
Daniel Jacklin will be taking to the ‘Monument’ stage at Ipswich Music Day on July 7th, and until then you can hear ‘Rewind’ on all streaming sites. You can find Daniel on social media at @danieljacklinmusic
