A Silent Film - "Danny, Dakota, & The Wishing Well"
This is one of those songs that I was immediately drawn to after the first listen. A Silent Film released Sand & Snow last year, and I have been hooked ever since. "Danny, Dakota, & The Wishing Well" is a love story about two young people and their separate lives. They are brought back together because of the wishing well that was the center piece for their first meeting. On top of being a great story-song, "Danny..." uses the musical tactic called crescendo to draw listeners in. By starting out slow with a sole keyboard, and gradually picking up the pace, A Silent Film grabs your attention with the first strum of that electric guitar. Musical genius.
