Here’s an introduction to Liverpool’s Dan Croll who you should put on your musical radar. Influenced by “the world music influence of Paul Simon, experimental orchestral work with African choirs, 1960’s psychedelia, the early sounds of Mars Volta, Beruit, Bon Iver and then more modern sounds such as Metronomy and Dirty Projectors”, he’s already turning heads in the UK (Q made his demo of ‘Home’ one of their Essential Downloads at the start of 2012, Communion Records included his ‘Marion’ on their most recent ‘New Faces’ compilation album).
He’s reaching out to the blogs now with “From Nowhere”; a track with pre-programmed Fafisa beats, a fat sliding bass line, and glacial guitars. Take a listen below.
Dan is continuing to work on his debut album aiming for a release in 2013.
