Dan Croll is a fabulous new solo artist with enough facets for a whole band. He’s the electro boy with links to the folkie scene (Communion Records included one of his tracks on their recent New Faces compilation), a multi-instrumentalist whose songwriting prowess has impressed everyone from former Beatles to legends in the world of fashion and design. He started 2012 with one of his demos (Marion) as a Q Essential Download and another (Home) picked up by Steve Lamaq on 6 Music and ended it with his debut single From Nowhere being hammered by Radio 1.
Half troubadour, half techno whiz, Dan is a latterday Beck, and the missing link between Jake Bugg and Joe Mount. No wonder he’s becoming the prime mover of the city’s first movement of note since the heady days of The Coral and The Zutons, one that also includes the critically lauded Stealing Sheep, Outfit, Kankouran, Jethro Fox, The Staves, Eye Emma Jedi, Mikhael Paskalev, Vasco Da Gama, Ninetails, Neon Lights and many others, bands and singers with ambitions to break out nationally in 2013. Dan is at the forefront of this scene. He’s Twitter friends with rapper Azealia Banks and Mumford and Sons’ Ben Lovett is a big fan, as is designer Paul Smith.
