Alex Siegel – “Daydreaming Pilot”
“Daydreaming Pilot” is another success from Alex Siegel, who has impressed with tracks like “Headspin” (one of this year’s best) and “Easy” in the past year. The California-based singer/songwriter continues expert utilization of his lush, endearing vocal presence and knack for melodically captivating songwriting. “Daydreaming Pilot” reminds me specifically of Jens Lekman’s heart-tugging work, especially with the hints of orchestral accompaniments in the enchanting woodwinds. Supremely melodic and touting flawless production, “Daydreaming Pilot” is a gorgeous piece of songwriting from the ever-rising Siegel.
