Stephen Springall’s debut release, a single entitled Midas Touch, is an interesting indie folk rock blend accommodating both folksy-Americana influences and the artist’s Irish roots. The song tackles the notion of class- and generational- differences, the driving forces of liberalism that encourage us to ‘climb’ and succeed. In faith to the original allegory, all of King Midas’ gold becomes worthless by abundance, and Springall’s emphasis on their interrelationship makes for a pragmatic and personal critique. An acoustic set with a raw and emotional ambience, Midas Touch is definitely an intriguing exploration. Check out his work on Spotify!
