Dan Croll returns with his first offering since his debut album Sweet Disarray ahead of Buyers Club show.
Dan Croll is more reliable than a Volvo. He’s more tuneful than a song thrush in Spring. Dan’s more delightful than a surprise visit from a long-lost friend. He’s just that kinda guy.
So it’s of little surprise that his comeback track One Of Us is a whopping dollop of instant melodic goodness – all the Croll ingredients are in place; beautiful harmonies, an infectious chorus, slabs of rhythmic hooks all packaged together in spirited effervescence.
What marks One Of Us out from his material on 2014’s debut Sweet Disarray is the sprinkling of hazy production and added oomph injected by guitarist Jethro Fox as his solo tears through the track with searing bombast. Fans of Tame Impala and Temples will be in raptures.
Dan told Noisy, “I’ve been itching for people to hear what’s been going on. I’ve challenged and pushed myself further than I have ever done before, and One Of Us marks the start of what’s to come. There were all kinds of influences – Tame Impala and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s John Baker. The energy came from listening to a lot of bands like Foals or Unknown Mortal Orchestra, but the real balls of the song came from bands like Queen and Black Sabbath.”
PS: here’s a note on that Buyers Club gig
