I've featured Hozier before on Down The Rabbit Hole, but he is such an exquisite singer songwriter with his bluesy gospel saturated melodies, he deserved another spot with his latest release "Sedated". With a gift for story telling, he disguises brilliant lyrics with infectious and haunting consonance. A heart throbbing drum beat opens the track and leads you through a cinematic performance I had previously only ever experienced when listening to Bjork or Jeff Buckley. Just about EVERY song by Hozier takes you on a journey, and I love every minute of it.
The self titled album is available for pre-order on iTunes and will be fully released October 7th, 2014. If you enjoyed this song I would recommend you check out his other tracks:
"Take Me To Church" (recently covered by Ed Sheeran)
