Michael Cullen Stands Out With Newly Released Track Do You Believe

4 May

From Australian artist, Michael Cullen, comes the single and music video titled Do You Believe. With lyrics reminiscent of streams of consciousness and free prose, the track reveals a reflective tone throughout the track. A lyric that stands out within the track “holding hands on the edge of journey” points out the meditative and thought provoking characteristics of Cullen’s songwriting. His sound reminds listeners of the sound of artists such as Depeche Mode, Nick Cave, and Spooky Black. With the tones and musical style compared to noir music and Southern Gothic Americana, Do You Believe does not disappoint those who are eager to listen to a unique sound by a musician standing out in a genre all his own.
