Dom Malin has released his latest single – “The Sea” and it is a breathtaking acoustic ballad that magnificently captures the bittersweet essence of life. This soulful ballad is imbued with a very inviting chord structure, an organic vocal performance, and poetic lyrics that just tugs at the listener’s heartstrings.
From acquiring his first electric guitar at the age of 12 – Dom knew that music was his life and that he was meant to be a musician. He even has a university degree in Music and he developed a lot of his talents during his tenure as a teacher in a creative college. From bloggers around the world, to even BBC Introducing Lincolnshire – who has interviewed John and has even featured his music as the song of the week on several occasions.
This single starts off with the strumming of a chorused acoustic guitar and an electric riff that is drenched in reverb, forming an intro that will draw you into Dom’s world. The soulful ballad then, gradually builds momentum and slowly other textures start piling in. As Dom’s raspy and soulful voice weaves a syllabic melody over the soft instrumentals and slowly, the verse unfolds into a heart wrenching story of pain and reminiscing. The poignant melody reaches a crescendo in the chorus, and the assimilation of the background vocals breathes a new life into this already heart wrenching song! The climax is absolutely stunning, with electric guitars taking the center stage and the vocal delivery from Dom becomes more urgent. Masterful.
“The Sea” is what I would call a sentimental and thought-provoking track and I can guarantee that it leaves a lasting impression on the listener. Dom has a very immersive and thought-provoking writing style accompanied by a delicate piano that teleports the user to the seaside. The song lyrics from what I understand, talks mainly about communication, urging the listener to speak up before it’s too late. A masterful yet soulful ballad!
The song is a must-add to any summer playlist, and Dom’s growing fan base is a testament to his ability to captivate audiences with his music. With “The Sea,” Dom Malin solidifies his position as a rising star in the singer-songwriter genre, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us next.
