I can’t really think of anything that’s been more progressively ingrained into our minds than the thought “You are special and unique”. This idea is a dangerous one to seed as it backfires quite hard, yet it has become an influential force in how things are today. So when you suddenly hear “You’re Not Special”, you’ll certainly feel attacked at first. But hold on, Leo Dolan has more to say on that subject!
In fact, the LA-based singer-songwriter doesn’t even mean to say it as an attack, and once you hear his new single, it becomes clear. Titled “You’re Not Special“, the song walks a calm pace of nuanceful indie folk-rock with delicate instrumentation. His soft vocals feature along with shimmery instrumental interludes, and the artist touches the abrasive side of “You’re Special” idea. It’s the dividing side of it that’s causing cracks in social communities along with its (surprisingly?) poor effect on an individual.
So instead of whatever you might think reading the title, you get a beautiful little melodic single that feels like a caress and carries a quite healthy change of wind as a message. Leo Dolan is very good at creating such songs – as an artist with a history of addiction, the topics picked for songs are not only of high relevance, they’re also healing to a large degree, saying things that most other people would not. In addition to great themes, Leo Dolan’s music is simply gorgeous. The new single is definitely wonderful!
