A few months back, Paul at Fizzy Pop was raving about Dan Black’s “Symphonies”, and at the time I recall liking it, but not really being swept off my feet. Then I heard it in the car on Radio 1, and I was hooked. You’ll recognize the “Umbrella” hook instantly, but it’s all of the extras that will reel you in, including his very distinct vocal delivery.
So you’re interested, right? Well, head on over to iTunes and pick it up, because it’s the Single of the Week, which means it’s free. Better yet, check out his full-length UN, which is also available at a discounted price, or his iTunes Live collection that was recorded last summer in London.
