And while, Electronic music is far from my area of expertise, I think it is clear that D.A.N has a talent worth every ounce of the backing he is giving it. It is clear to me D.A.N views himself as a singer-songwriter, but rather than his accompaniment being the traditional one of the acoustic guitar or plain, pure piano – D.A.N’s musical canvas for his thoughtful and thought-provoking lyrics is provided by electronic sounds.
I could easily steal a few names from contemporary electronica and pass them off as my own view as to who D.A.N sounds like (the easiest being Bastille), but the almost Gothic feel of the music and downbeat nature of the rhythm patterns, brings to mind early ’80’s electronic pioneers such as Depeche Mode or Yazoo.
Very, very promising indeed. Keep an eye out for this young man.
