Dan Szyller – “Drifter In The Sun”


A stirring rock sound enamors on “Drifter In The Sun,” the latest single from Dan Szyller. The effort represents the first single from Szyller’s upcoming album, THE GREAT ESCAPE. The Brazilian-born, France-based singer/songwriter takes inspiration from classic rock heroes like Iron Maiden, The Doors, Pink Floyd, and The Ramones, bridging throwback charm with a modern-minded synergy. Szyller has caught our ears previously with his debut full-length album, The Celestial Immigrant.

Twangy guitars swell into a thunderous wave of distortion. Szyller’s vocals then project a timeless-sounding quality, declaring “I’m a drifter in the sun.” Sporadic organs and the debonair vocal presence traverse into a compelling chorus: “Oh baby, when I see that ocean, I feel so blessed.” The soaring vocal and guitar work prove fitting amidst a lyrical composure, reflecting a sea-faring state of contemplation with palpable yearning: “I miss you bad.” “Drifter In The Sun” is another sturdy rock success from Dan Szyller.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2023’ Spotify playlist.
