It's been ages since I've listened to folk, or acoustic music for that matter, so this new feature comes as a breath of fresh air!
After 5 hours of dancing to techno & Latin-inspired house music in a dark room just some hours ago, I managed to wake up pretty early for a Sunday (not drinking alcohol has definitely its benefits) and I still managed to catch-up the early, quiet hours of Berlin's Sunday morning. The Dreggs' "Ocean and Earth" couldn't be a better soundtrack to the "now". A reminder how awesome life could be. Also, while the track is folky, it comes with an awesome twist, which caught me off guard, but also made me smile. The reggae-like motifs are just nothing else but shortcut to happiness.
The Dreggs, a two-piece indie-folk duo formed in mid 2017, and have been making their way through the music scene at a steady speed. The pair of musicians from Australia blend both summery sounds and winter mellowness, all that wrapped in a layer of "chill". If you can imagine a happy version of Ben Howard & City and Colour, that's probably the closest to describing their sound.
The track is part of Dreggs' Seas Embrace EP, so definitely dig deeper if you enjoy this.
