Delicate delivery of words that count. A revelry as flourishing as a rose-bud. The mature and unassuming songs of Daniel Trakell, shines indubitably. A decadent sense of acceptance, and reverence for the now and forever – ‘Turnaround’ is an anthemic promise, ready for procurement by the self and its dignities.
It’s a song that wraps the listener with warmth and mahogany rich ambience, ‘Let Me Be’ explores Trakell’s whimsy of life’s plight and the challenges along the way.
“‘Turnaround’ is about giving yourself time to pause and process things after life deals you a heavy blow and having the strength to get up and keep going,” said the Melbourne based artist. “More specifically it touches on divorce and the moment I found out my parents were separating. My dad continued to live in our old family house by himself for a couple of years after my mum moved out, and I remember the sadness, helplessness and guilt I felt whenever I went back to my hometown to visit him and he wasn’t coping.”
But also with ‘Turnaround’, there is a visceral length of hope for the future. A view of the worse case scenario has come and gone. So, what are you going to do about the future, that hasn’t come just yet.
‘Turnaround’ is of positivity. Not forgetting the past, but springing forth from the anguish already cemented, into the wider and newer possibilities.
