DARREN CROSS.

Woah.

Exclusive (not actually).

You’ll never guess which 90’s/early 2000’s electro-punk STAR is back, all grown up and ready to…

well, do some country-styled acoustic stuff that’s probably just what you need for you Sunday morn.

Darren Cross was a member of Gerling, a band that was incredibly important in my musical awakening. ‘Enter Space Capsule’ was one of my first CD’s, and Gerling  actually helped me ease my way into appreciating electronic music.

Now though, Darren has gone a little alt-country. You might have seen the Jep and Dep project he’s got going with Jessica Cassar. The solo stuff is similar, albeit, slightly more introspective.

‘Slings and Arrows’ feels familiar in it’s structure, but there’s a sense of almost despair in this. It’s captured beautifully with Darren’s guitar work, and his voice carries the track in a way that doesn’t overwork it. It was actually written whilst Darren was driving through Nashville last year. You can hear that influence pretty clearly.

‘Slings and Arrows’ is taken from Darren’s debut solo EP No Damage which should be out in August.

Miks.
