Central Coast-based, singer-songwriter, Brandon Duff worked with multi-award winning producer Rod McCormack on his latest single, Crystal Eyes – it’s our Song of the Day!

Crystal Eyes is an emotional coming-of-age song, guided by strong storytelling and ambient vocals. It explores ideas of youth and young love, drawing from experiences of finding someone new in your life and sharing your past heartbreaks to grow closer.

Brandon says, “Being excited to have someone new in your life but with melancholy undertones knowing it may not last. There’s a beauty about finding someone new that makes you feel refreshed and loved, but it can also resurface past feelings of loss that have never really left. I drew on experiences of youth, drinking in parks and staying out in Newtown, trying to find where you fit in the world. I have fond memories of going out with friends in the city and feeling larger than life and wanted to capture that within the song as well.”

The track also features harmony vocals by Reigan Derry, who was a finalist on Australian Idol and The X Factor Australia, as well as musician Glenn Wilson, who played on Passenger’s Let It Go.
