Dru Cutler got his start at the age of fourteen playing in many different bands. After getting some experience playing with other people and graduating with a degree in composition he went on to start developing a solo career. In 2016 he released an LP and this year he has already released a single entitled “Hometown” along with another song called “Infinite Moons.”
The two songs have exceptional production. Suffice it to say the songs are radio ready. “Hometown” sounds like a single from head to toe. It’s catchy and a fine balance between Americana and indie rock that a lot of people will enjoy.
Cutler on the other hand isn't taking many chances with this song to stick out from the crowd. I wouldn't have minded a little more experimentation. He sounds like a mix of bands like Ryan Adams, The Shine and Wilco with a ton of good ole’ Americana.
The song revolves around piano, clean guitar, drums, bass and his vocals. On the chorus he is supported by vocal harmonies when he sings “In my hometown / I used to be found.” The song comes equipped with a fairly standard breakdown after the first chorus and a rocking guitar solo. It’s a predictable yet enjoyable song.
Up next is “Infinite Moons” which has a completely different feel. The song has a singer/songwriter vibe and is soft, melancholy and catchy. I really enjoyed this track and thought his vocals were exceptional on this song. On top of that some of the ghostly instrumental sections sounded great.
I’m not all that familiar with Cutler’s previous releases but thought these two songs were enough to warrant checking out his full-length from last year.
