Singer song writer Daniel Pearson is back with new single ‘One For Conversation’ the first new material since his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Satellites’ and his return sees Daniel ditch the acoustic, switch on the amps and plug in his electric guitar.
This is Alt Rock with a melodic twist, incorporating a riff that could easily have been written by Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan – it wasn’t Daniel writes all his own material. It can be tough for a performer to change their sound but here Daniel has effortlessly made the transgression from acoustic troubadour to Alt Rock whilst retaining his classic song styling sensibilities.
One For Conversation soars along at break neck pace and indeed rocks, certain elements of this track remind me of Hole’s ‘Celebrity Skin’ – and that is a very good thing indeed.
It will be interesting to hear the rest of the new album to find out exactly how far Daniel has progressed and explored his new sound.
On the strength of this song it appears he is having a whole lot of fun, and I’m sure you will too. 8/10
