Seasoned singer-songwriter Diego Clare releases “Bridesmaid,” the first single from his forthcoming record Diegesis. I can hear a myriad of influences coming together in the track’s composition in ways that I was not at first prepared for. Vocal melodies swirl together with string arrangements reminiscent of Beatles era productions to create an air of refined, classical – and to me very nostalgic – beauty. This is laid over simple, fat bass lines that support the purposeful instrumental embellishments that are layered throughout the track, speaking to the caliber of the piece’s production. To me, it sounds like a romantic portrayal of North-Eastern America – a young, yet knowing depiction of Americana.
Diegesis is set for an August 2014 release. You can listen to more Diego Clare via his soundcloud.
