Dan Croll releases a brand new song, the quirky, addictive electro/pop classic ‘Swim’; the first taste to be taken from his eagerly anticipated sophomore album due for release on Communion Records/Caroline Australia in 2017.
‘Swim’, premiered last week as Radio 1’s Hottest Record In The World, is a joyful, electronically propelled slice of indie paradise with razor sharp lyrics. The track is a faultless example of Dan’s ability to write a hook that is both meaningful and irresistibly catchy. Rebecca Hawley from Liverpool band Stealing Sheep features on the infectious chorus. ‘Swim’ is produced by Ben Allen and was recorded in Atlanta.
“I chose Ben because I loved how he bounced around genres – from Deerhunter and Animal Collective, to Cee-Lo Green and Kelis” Dan says.
The accompanying video embraces water and so much more. “I wanted something that got across the swimming metaphor but also got across the more intimate, anxious side of the song,” Dan explains.
This is the first new music Dan has released since his acclaimed debut ‘Sweet Dissaray’, which led him to stages all over the globe headlining shows in the US, UK, as well as supporting acts like Imagine Dragons and Chvrches and landing on the billing for iTunes Festival and SXSW. More recently, Dan Croll returned to the live arena at Bushstock, and will play his only London headline date this year at the Village Underground October 5th.
Stay tuned for further information about his new album.
