Julian Dinwoodie wants you to “believe in and look forward to a better time”

It is perhaps indecorous, if not wrong, to label his artistic direction as falling within the conventional. It clearly isn’t.

UNXIGNED is independently run by a team of freelance writers and music curators helping underrated artists get the attention they deserve and guilt-tripping fans into checking out the irresistible. Help us keep the lights on with your riches, you lucky mortals or, better yet, give it to the most needy.

Julian Dinwoodie‘s latest single highlights an inspiring dreamy pop beat with an intriguing play of harmonic strokes.

“Madness Over Might” is the second single from the Los Angeles-based songwriter and producer who colors his style with a wall of psychedelic sounds, unconventional rhythms, and orchestral arrangements.

It is perhaps indecorous, if not wrong, to label his artistic direction as falling within the conventional. It clearly isn’t. He’s taking his own path.

The “Madness Over Might” offering requires a conscious and attentive listening in order to be truly understood.

A Math-clad chord progression and a simple vocal melody are complemented by pulsating bass tweaks and finely layered choruses—the resulting aesthetic bringing Delta Sleep’s Devin Yuceil and Jacob Collier to mind.

The goal of the song is to inspire people to be optimistic and to overcome the most difficult times.

“Several months ago, I was in a major rut, and it was difficult to find any sort of motivation or hope for the future,” Dinwoodie revealed in a statement. “This song will hopefully inspire people not to ‘lose their will and wilt away’; but to believe in and look forward to a better time.”
