Within an industry where many new music releases leave us with tracks that feel and sound almost identical, Jersey-born singer, songwriter and rising artist, Tadhg Daly has provided our eager ears with an indie-ballad that’s beautifully refreshing, powerful and heart-warming with a debut release, ‘Hit the Ground’.
With already over 75k Spotify streams on his previous (and awesome) track, ‘Fires’, Daly has made headway within the industry and clearly has much to come with an irresistible sound. So far, Daly has a breathtakingly impressive portfolio of gigs behind him.
From performing for a jam-packed, sold-out show for music legend, James Blunt, to playing iconic festivals, Boomtown, Isle of Wight Festival and supporting the Hoosiers, it’s truly no shock that Daly’s upcoming show in London is sold-out.
Just when you think Daly’s done it all, the budding artist has had coverage from BBC Introducing London and Jersey. And with the stunning sound of ‘Hit the Ground’, this coverage is set to explode across the music scene.
The track begins with the tender brush of guitar chords that sweetly work with Daly’s strong vocals that have a stylistic edge, radiating emotion and drive. As the glistening track blossoms, the drums bloom with an anthem feel.
I can’t get enough of the striking chorus. I feel as though I want to leave whatever I’m engrossed in doing at the time and leap into the night, feeling the wind on my lashes and watching the London lights stream by. Euphoric.
Yup, this corker of a track has that ‘I can do anything’ vibe to it. I am addicted to the aspiring, hopeful and emotionally-raw lyricism that Daly has so wonderfully created.
With Daly explaining that the track is “a really important song” that sensitively touches on his “rebirth as a person”, this soon-to-be-hit number has the capability to resonate with so many.
Within the track, Daly remarks on the “guiding” voice that particularly represents his Mother who he has described as a “spiritual guru”. With raw sentiment and care laced throughout ‘Hit the Ground’, in all honesty, it’s more than capable of having you in happy tears!
I think it goes without saying that Tadhg Daly is one to watch because this rising artist has so much good to come!
