Danny Baxley – Crossed A Line

Danny Baxley mixes spoken poetry with dreamy pop on the beautiful “Crossed A Line”. Blurred grooves glide by with such grace over the course of the piece. Rhythms feel addictive in nature as they anchor the song’s more surreal aspects. Almost psychedelic at times the song seems to reflect upon modernity, on relationships, and the social norms that inform a person’s life. Lyrics rest at the very heart and center of the track, with the distorted vocals adding an important almost shoegaze element into the mix. By offering distant sounding vocals, Danny Baxley adds to the otherworldliness that informs the piece.

Everything starts immediately. Graceful guitar work adorns the track as the song unfurls with such style. Neatly tying together pop, alternative rock, with elements of dance thrown into the mix the song has a kaleidoscopic, all-encompassing sound to it. Volume is an absolute must for this is a song that should be felt as much as heard. Slowly but surely the song’s gradual buildup becomes ever larger, with the layers of sound swirling around in such a colorful display. Texturally rich, the way that Danny Baxley lets the melody neatly collide with this lyricism creates a song that positively teems with life. Towards the latter half of the song the piece’s mantra grows and grow until it becomes all consuming.

With “Crossed A Line” Danny Baxley creates an infectious, welcoming sound one whose ornate architecture draws the listener into a whole other world.
