San Diego’s Ditches provides a deep-rooted and brooding track to muddle through the long winter nights with. “Fear Shifter” takes shape by way of gently listless vocals, dynamic guitar lines, and steadfast drum work to hammer home an emotional complexity that spans the gamut. The brainchild of seasoned musician Tim Donnelly, Ditches takes on a complex perspective that’s both omnipresent and deeply individual all at once, hinting towards a storied career of honing the songwriting craft. From his angst-ridden punk beginnings to now, Donnelly has settled somewhere in the indie rock spectrum, capturing a softness that’s as esoteric as it is enveloping. Delve in to “Fear Shifter” below, and stick around for Ditches’ upcoming EP Not Your Mirror, out February 1st.
