DAUNT – Unbearable Light

After having introduced London singer/songwriter DAUNT in our Going Inbox series with the song Drive,today we share the second single off his upcoming self-titled debut EP, which will be out on April 28th through Beatnik Creative. Unbearable Light unravels around icy synths and a slow-burning melody that make us think of a cool, weird mix of Majical Cloudz and The National.

Speaking on writing the track, DAUNT says: “it was clear that the song was really visual, taking cues from night-driving and classic Hollywood road movies. In short, our central character is driving away from an undefined event or relationship which has revealed some aspects of himself that he’d rather not have seen, as though an ‘unbearable light’ has been cast on him.
