Growing up in the coastal Dorset town of Bridport, Dare learned to play music from his piano teacher mother while absorbing the pastoral richness of the geography from his farmer father. Fed on classical music, but drawn to artists like Radiohead, Rufus Wainwright, and PJ Harvey, he has taken an interesting path with his music, blending a spare avant-garde aesthetic with dark but often melodic songwriting. The sounds he introduced with 2013's four-song EP Seven Hours were thoughtful and patient, taking their time to develop, yet ultimately engaging the listener.
Listen free to Douglas Dare – Whelm (Clockwork, Nile and more). London-based singer-songwriter Douglas Dare releases his debut album 'Whelm' on Erased Tapes. With the piano at the core, Dare vocalises his short prose and poems to a backdrop of drums, electronics and bras. t was in November last year that the duo Douglas Dare and st Fabian Prynn decided to record an album, and by January they were listening to it.
So I know I'm biased here but: The album is a hidden gem with an entire album of growers, its the work of an introvert, quiet and intimate. Caroline a very modern love-tragedy that hasn't really been sung about. The rest of the album will hold purpose for others, as each song is its own. 2y. Pewu. 60. 'Scars' from his previous EP were magical. But yeah, a full album where all songs are driven by piano and the same way of singing is a bit tiring.
The songs on Dare's debut album, Whelm ache with a sort of moody emotion that young and old can have in common-wide-eyed, reflective and besotted with the way the world makes us feel.
