The introduction puts the listener in the universe that the single lives in and makes us feel comfortable to undertake this journey with Daniel. Its melancholic feel suggest a certain distance between all people and as the songs progresses it becomes clear that even the bittersweet can be a cure and reminder of our humanity. This dualism also exists in the moments in the song where his voice makes way for nice little interludes.

Daniel Lumley clearly likes to listen to music, music with good and honest lyrics that is.

His newest single, Bittersweet Remedy falls within the category of modern or alt-folk music. This genre has the pitfall of sometimes sounding a bit generic and similar. That being said, Daniel seems aware of this fact and took a simple approach to differentiate himself. He wrote an honest and vulnerable song and one can hear that he means it. It speaks from the heart. Whether or not it was written for someone specifically one needs to ask Daniel himself. Whatever his answer might be, the track has an universal feel and the theme is one most people can associate with.

 Love is a complex thing; sometimes it feels like the truth and other times it is layered with doubt and interpretation. Lumley seems aware of this and translates it well through a combination of to-the-point lyrics and relevant accompanying music. He wishes the subject of the lyrics a good journey while also highlighting the things that was learned, lost and gained through this relationship, whether fictional or for real.

The track is well arranged and conveys a certain sensitivity. The introduction puts the listener in the universe that the single lives in and makes us feel comfortable to undertake this journey with Daniel. Its melancholic feel suggest a certain distance between all people and as the songs progresses it becomes clear that even the bittersweet can be a cure and reminder of our humanity. This dualism also exists in the moments in the song where his voice makes way for nice little interludes. This is the times when we sit back to think, listen and learn.

Do yourself a favor and give Bittersweet Remedy a whirl today, it might also serve as a bittersweet medicine for your own heart.
