With his long-awaited third album ‘Grand Plan’ set to arrive on August 21st through Communion Records, Dan Croll shares the next pair of singles lifted from his forthcoming full-length, ‘So Dark’ and ‘Honeymoon’.
Since his return at the start of the year, the singer and songwriter has continued to release his new offerings in twos, shared chronologically of his experience in moving to Los Angeles. ‘So Dark’ explores the difficulty he found in fitting into his new environment through a lens of fuzzy guitars and space synths, while ‘Honeymoon’ takes us on a more romantic journey as he looks to work through his fears and anxiety over starting and then maintaining a new relationship.
Explaining the motive he had for ‘So Dark’, he said, “After a few months in LA I started to find my feet a little, but where I still lagged was on the social side of things. Everyone I met in LA seemed to be desperately happy, sugar coating everything, forcing humour out of fear to be seen as sad. It made me really miss home, It made me miss that dark British humour and the ability to laugh at yourself, no matter how bad it gets. ‘So Dark’ is about that search, and the moment that perseverance paid off to meet someone like minded.”
While adding his feelings behind ‘Honeymoon’, “I’ve found relationships hard as a musician, the constant time away from home for touring, recording, and promoting has killed all of my past relationships. This song is about the fear of not making it past the honeymoon period of a new relationship, approaching that first moment of having to leave and hoping that you get to come back to it.”
