Singer-songwriter Seiichi Daimo has announced plans to release his debut EP, In The Inbetween, on February 25th, 2014. Reminiscent of artists such as The Decemberists, City & Colour, and The Lumineers, Seiichi takes on an indie-folk style, with lyrics written in a pop mindset.
In The Inbetween, features four songs in a fleshed-out, full-band acoustic setting. Taking cues from the likes of Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly and Bob Dylan, the opening title track shows Seiichi knows his way around writing a comforting melody. The vocals are of pure heart, sung with passion to delivery open lyricism that is relatable for anyone: “I’m not the man that I wish that I was / But I do try / I’ll sing my heart out tonight.” Upon first listen, it’s familiar, nostalgic and refreshingly new all the same.
