John Moreland – “Claim Your Prize”: Dan’s DJ Pick of the Week


Dan’s DJ Pick this week is John Moreland’s “Claim Your Prize”! Moreland is a singer-songwriter from Tulsa, OK. “Claim Your Prize” is off of Moreland’s July release “Birds In The Ceiling.”

Moreland relates his creative style to having a conversation. By taking a softer approach to his recording process, each track feels like a secret conversation with a close friend. Moreland’s vocals feel intimate paired with such emotionally driven lyrics.

“Claim Your Prize” is a dynamic track that combines seemingly somber guitar chords with electronic elements. The lyrics on “Claim Your Prize” show his intense intentionality for his listener’s perspective. The track discusses the feeling of being burned by you circumstances. Moreland zero’s in on a feeling so familiar, but pairs it with upbeat electronic elements.
