Following his spectacular debut on the music world, this incredibly talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has swept everyone off their feet! Above all, Dan Szyller symbolizes what hard work, perseverance, and faith in oneself can accomplish. His debut album, “The Celestial Immigrant,” has already received thousands of streams and has been added to numerous popular playlists, which is no minor feat for a new artist. Dan Szyller is bringing music back to its true meaning and inspiration, and it’s no surprise that he’s stealing hearts from France to America and the rest of the world!
Taking cues from the classic songwriters of the past, ranging from artists who pushed the boundaries of rock music like The Doors to the psychedelic space-rock leanings of Pink Floyd, Dan Szyller has combined these influences and the result is a sound that he can rightly call his own and one that will transcend his own borders and appeal to music lovers far and wide.
“The Celestial Immigrant” is a 7-track phenomenal album with some ageless tunes and most importantly consequential message about freedom being that Dan details his life experience as an immigrant. The lyrical composition is purposeful, emotive, and complex and the opulent guitar instrumentation offers fans and listeners a recording project crafted together by a wealthy tapestry of sounds and textures. While each passing track is wholly different from the other, the whole album still manages to remain logical and consistent as an overall body of art- such magic!
“Sunday Again,” tells a sad tale worth the big screen. Lyrically, you are taken through the story of a lonely heart that has had enough. The melody is laid-back and emotionally affecting his performance seamlessly blurs the lines between a wide range of genre definitions and creative ideas. “Sunday Again” adopts a new soundscape for the latter half of the song, raising the standard in terms of diversity and attention!
“My Road” blends enigmatic and wistful lyrics with the otherwordly grunge-like feel as he wields the sound with the monolithic wall of distortion mingling with the bright and mysterious guitar electric riffs to generate an octane of intrigue and instantaneous joyfulness!
For some reason unbeknownst to me, I can’t get the track, “Summer Kiss” out of my head. This song has everything you’d wish for in a record; the upbeat and lively melody blended with a nostalgic feel of the summer through the lyrics. The lyrics are clear without being too juvenile or overly sentimental; they portray an honest and straightforward feeling of the summer
There is a great deal of dynamism and exploration throughout and this is the album to play from the first tune to the last without cherry-picking for you don’t want to miss out on this journey through space, time, and other relatable concepts. Follow the attached link and let the exploration begin!
