Barns Courtney is a rising star who stands out from the crowd of modern singer/songwriters with a sound that defies genre and a voice with plenty of stories to tell. Just this year, Courtney released his first EP The Dull Drums,which took the blues rock scene by storm in January. Now, riding the momentum he gained earlier this year, he’s just released the new single ‘Golden Dandelions’, which could mean there is a new EP, or even a new album, on the way. When compared to his work on The Dull Drums, “Golden Dandelions” is definitely bringing a brighter mood to the table, seemingly drawing on the high of newfound and growing success while still bringing with it the pulse and the drive that inspired the EP. If this is a preview of a future album, I can’t wait to see what the rest of it sounds like.
