David Taylor released new single titled 'Battered' which is nominated for the 2019 Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition

The new single, by promising 21 year-old has been shortlisted for the 2019 Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition alongside a number of notable figures such as The Veronicas, Dean Lewis and Zedd.

It’s obvious to see why ‘Battered’ received the positive attention that it did considering the powerful message behind the track. It details the struggle of being stuck in an abusive relationship and not feeling strong enough to leave. David’s voice tells the story, starting softly and building into the decision where it’s time to leave.

Watch the music video for the track here. It is beautifully created with a bittersweet ending.
