With his music distinguished as ‘impassioned literary folk’, Owen Meany’s Batting Stance is the pseudonym of singer-songwriter Daniel Walker.
Daniel has spent the last few years exploring the thrills of the live circuit, whilst constantly perfecting his craft. Following on from the release of his highly anticipated full-length Feather Weights with LHM Records, the Canadian native returns with animated visuals for focus track Car Odyssey.
Embellished with buoyant dreamy guitar rhythms, new single and focus track Car Odyssey is Daniel’s sugar-sweet indie rock anthem. Fit-to-burst with colourful melodies and adrenaline-heavy guitar rhythms, the playful bop explores broken relationships; where all hope is lost.
Animated and edited by Aidan Searle, the new music video visualises the future hopes and nostalgic memories of a used car for sale in an auto repair shop parking lot. Discussing the video, the indie crooner tells us: “Car Odyssey is about how humans often will put more time into vehicle maintenance than upkeep in a relationship. The video dwells on a used car in a junkyard as it re-tells old adventures and hopes for the chance at a new one.”
Recorded above a fishmonger’s shop in the Halifax Regional Municipality, Daniel’s latest album Feather Weights consists of eight singularly voiced short stories that explore everyday theming with deep insight, and thoughtful perspective. Boasting the Owen Meany live band with bassist Cailen Alcorn Pygott, and keyboardist Siobhan Martin, together they showcase soft chords of folk pushed into the angles of indie rock.
