Melbourne indie-rocker Dan Vogl made quite a few waves just two years ago, with ‘If I Die’.

That track helped him score a position within The Push’s Music Industry Pathways mentorship program – which led to him being booked to play The Hills Are Alive.

Since then, he’s been lapping up the live music scene, counting himself as a performer at festivals and shows in Victoria and nationally. Now, we’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on the music video for his new song a day before it comes out.

Vogl’s new track, ‘Gifted In Gold’ is indie-rock to a tee. Country sensibilities seem to work their way into the track. Produced by Joel Quatermain [Meg Mac, Justin Tebbutt, British India], the track acts as the first taste of Vogl’s next release.

Of the new track, Vogl says: “This song was written from frustration of other people accepting mediocre lives as ‘enough’ for themselves.”

“We are taught as kids to dream big and reach for the stars, but once we become adults people are quick to slap responsibilities and restrictions on themselves and each other,” the lauded Melbourne singer-songwriter continues. This is something Vogl wishes to challenge through his music.

Vogl concludes: “My intention is to inspire people to push through these obstacles and pursue those goals no matter how hard or out of reach they may seem”.

What better way to celebrate the release of this new track, than a headline show at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel? Vogl will be hitting up the beloved Gaso next weekend. But, it doesn’t stop there. His new EP Gifted In Gold will make its way to fans in June.

‘Gifted In Gold’, the lead single from Dan Vogl’s EP of the same name, will be released tomorrow. The EP is out Friday 28 June.
