Hailing from Wicklow in Ireland, Hozier has had time to hone his craft - and it shows.
A deft mix of sultry folk tones, Delta blues notes and a whole heap of individuality, the singer's new single 'Sedated' is due to be released on July 14th.
For an introduction to his work, you really couldn't ask for much better. Buoyed by imposing piano chords, 'Sedated' finds beauty in melancholy, striving to overcome obstacles in the process.
Shooting a music video for the track, Hozier is hidden in the gloom illuminated by fluorescent lighting. Stylishly shot, you can watch it now.
