Portland’s Brandon Thomas De La Cruz takes an artistic approach as an acoustic singer-songwriter in his track “New Wave.” This song, as well as others on the upcoming album, was inspired by artists and poets like Rainer Maria Rilke and Picasso, conjuring strong imagery and vivid anecdotes. De La Cruz’s gentle vocals and tender acoustic guitar strumming lend to his picturesque musings, while leaving the rest to the listener’s interpretation. The full album, I Am Calling For My Lover is due to be released on March 24th, and promises to be full of dreamy symbolism much like this track. Test the waters with “New Wave” below.
