7/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 21 November 2013

London based singer-songwriter Douglas Dare has come up with an intriguing little debut EP for Erased Tapes. Recorded in south-london bedrooms and practice spaces with drummer/producer Fabian Prynn,  ‘Seven Hours’ is the result of a collaborative process that captures ideas in their infancy and transforms them into odd and impressive modern composition.

Dare’s piano virtuosity provides a warm skeletal backing to his abstracted poetry and wonky vocal style (note: not that dissimilar to Jeff Buckley now I think about it) but it’s the production flourishes and odd beat arrangements that take this beyond the realms of neo-classical into more soulful, emotive terrain. Think Antony & The Johnsons meets James Blake with a touch of mid period Radiohead thrown in for good measure.

Generally this isn’t my cup of tea but you can’t fault the production and the vibe is definitely there especially on closing number ‘Flames’.
