Dan Croll releases his highly anticipated debut album 'Sweet Disarray' through Deram Records/Universal Music
on the 10th March 2014.
The past year has seen the Paul McCartney endorsed Dan Croll rise from a blog favourite to a firm favourite on One's to Watch for 2014 lists across the board ' from iTunes, Spotify, Vevo and XFM to Clash Magazine, The Independent, Marie Claire, Instyle, The Telegraph and Teen Vogue.
2013 saw Dan Croll sell out a string of headline shows on both sides of the Atlantic, bag coveted support slots
with the likes of Haim, Bombay Bicycle Club, Bastille and Chvrches and win over festival crowds throughout the
He became a regular on the radio, (picking up playlists from Radio 1, XFM and 6 Music), racked up
over 4 million online streams and was featured on blogs and websites so extensively that he topped the Hype
Machine charts several times.
All in addition to his music finding its way onto The Grand Theft Auto 5 and FIFA 2014 soundtracks and featuring on a Toshiba animated advert. This year Dan will embark upon his first headline UK tour, as well as supporting London Grammar on various dates throughout the UK.
Recorded in an abandoned school gym and produced by himself and friends, Dan Croll's forthcoming album 'Sweet Disarray' is not only a collection of expertly crafted songs, but is also set to be hailed as one of 2014's great debuts. From the synth pop masterpiece 'From Nowhere', beautifully melodic 'Home', and infectiously moving 'Sweet Disarray' to the irresistibly forlorn 'Can You Hear Me' and the pan'cultural 'Compliment Your Soul', the album showcases Dan Croll's innate ability to write enchanting songs with an intelligent alt-pop sensibility at every turn.
