Tinsley – “Dust”
-There’s a magical energy to this song that hits right from the opening. It’s got a sense of space that I rarely hear in other recordings. Tinsley writes with intimacy and connection, allowing the guitar and piano to create a real mood. Once the full band comes in, the track turns a bit more toward pop rock. But the star of the show is definitely Tinsley’s quality vocal work. It’s understated in places, but always conveys a sense of intimacy and charm. This is a good one for fans of indie pop.
