Now that Summer is coming to a close and many of us are back in the saddle either going to school or going to concerts again, I’d thought I would send a little remember about my Summer where I released my fourth album, an album that I am quite proud of, its called ‘Again?!’.
“Again?!” is a 40-minute roller coaster ride where black metal meets 90s punk and the singer-songwriter meets noise rock. Distinct airy vocals and a commitment to the art of the song hold it all together making it a complete sounding fusion of rock aesthetics. The uplifting subject matter of ‘North Star’ defies the wicked break neck pulse of the tempo marrying together stadium rock riffs and simple lyrical hooks reminiscent of 90s styled punk rock. On ‘Escapee Satellite,’ bad vibes inspire a getaway trip from planet Earth as otherworldly guitar textures amplify the feelings of isolation and rejection that have permeated our world the last year and a half. Things can also get weird as the need for ‘insect love’ is told from the perspective of a soul-sucking spider on the mechanical beat laden ‘Firefly.’ Speedy dissonant chord changes flank sensitive vocals on ‘Twenty One Centuries,’ an ode to the ‘Village of the Damned’ movie storyline, while disco breakdowns get incised with thick grunge guitar riffs on the narcissistic ‘Not’ as the playful words alarm and baffle. A shimmering murk gives way to thundering groove metal on ‘Knock You Out’ while ‘Feeding Time’ goes from delicate electro-pop to demented anime punk bombast.
“Again?!” was released on June 11th 2021 and can be streamed across multiple platforms (YouTube Music, Spotify, etc).
Dan Potter Sings bio:
Dan Potter Sings is the alias of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Dan Potter. His songs broadcast a wide spectrum of influences producing genre-defying songs in the process. Dan, who is based in Vancouver, BC Canada, is a ‘one man band’ and has turned his bedroom studio into a song factory, churning out tracks like some candy machine dispensing loud alternative rock music. All three of his albums and singles released since 2013 were written and performed by him alone as an experiment in free expression. What was captured is steeped in individualism and personal circumstance; his lack of conformity has subsequently led to a sizable aesthetic variety of pop/rock music that continues to fascinate audiences around the world.
