This week my new single of the week is the brilliant 'Broken Flowers' from Danny L Harle.
Real name Daniel Eisner Harle, Danny L Harle is a British music producer and writer. He produced this song back in 2013, but its only recently gotten attention, from the likes of Radio One where yours truly stumbled across it on my way to work one day. It was released in November 2015 as an EP.
I caught the last few seconds of it, and I was captivated by the vocals, which stuck with me. I had no idea what the song was, and a week later, suddenly heard it again and immediately decided it was my single of the week!!
This is a dance track, but its very beautifully sung on the vocals. Its full of electro sounds, and synth, and a great pulsing beat to it. What I didn't know, is that Harle isn't ordinarily this accessible for mainstream. He's usually a little more off radar, but this has truly put him on mine!!
The vocals on this track, are provided by Emily Verlander, and she soars effortlessly and cleanly over this dance track that has more than a few toes dipped in house. There are parts where her vocals are chopped and edited, but I prefer the flowing clean vocals over the music in the background. Its somehow satisfying in combination.
The words are easy to remember and repeat constantly to yourself, or out loud in my case, getting a few funny looks! "Teardrops feel like showers, There's nothing I can see; lying awake for hours, time stands still around me. Teardrops feel like showers, I thought I was free; lying awake for hours, with just your broken flowers".
All in all, this is a great song. Good beat, great vocals, catchy and uplifting. Go take a listen and let me know what you think.
