Add To Basket

 

Debut album from the seriously talented Dan Arborise.

Dan is an amazing guitarist and singer, his unique and haunting vocals a perfect match for his sensitive songs and incredibly complex guitar technique. Influenced by the music of Nick Drake and John Martyn and inspired by the sweet melodies and simple harmonies of Teenage Fanclub, Jeff Buckley and most recently the Fence Collective, this album is a collection of fragile acoustic songs – beautiful music, beautifully performed.

Produced and mixed by label mate Jon Hopkins, Around In Circles is shaping up to be a classic that will find its way to the forefront of the current blossoming UK folk singer songwriter scene.

"John Martyn meets Nick Drake for the 21st Century."
In The Mix

"But what else marks Devonshire lad Dan Arborise out from a hundred other Nick Drake disciples? Is it his immaculate guitar, setting up shop somewhere between the fearsome playing of folk titan Nic Jones and the freeflowing style of Madagascan picker D'Gary? Is it the perceptive songs, all delivered in a voice that shares Drake's lower register but is noticeably less guarded? Or is it Around In Circles' luminescent production, courtesy of Eno-endorsed Jon Hopkins, that piles slices of guitar high and lets them sparkle and glow like a starry, moon-filled night? Whatever it is, this is a debut album that instantly allows Dan Arborise to pull up a chair alongside the likes of Jose Gonzalez and James Yorkston."
The Word

NDJ
