DEMIAN is a singer-songwriter whose catalogue is short but is packed full of perfection. In fact, his debut song in 2020 was my personal vote for song of the year, even above releases from my absolute ults. It is the perfect blend of melancholy and chill with excellent production and is a song that sticks with you long after you’ve heard it.
He rode in on the wave of 80s adjacent tracks that 2020 was heavy with, but his sound was one that will linger on much longer than that, and we really look forward to seeing what his new track with DAWN is going to be like. It’s hard to predict, given how varied and diverse his sound has been up until this point.
If you don’t know about him, you have my condolences, and my encouragement to check him out so you don’t miss out as he climbs his way to sure success.
If you prefer to get to know him through his taste in music which certainly says a lot about a person, listen to the Spotify playlist he made of his “favorite tracks to listen to while looking out the window” here.
If you’d prefer a more visual approach, here you go:
