‘Dan’ is the second single to be taken from the ‘hot’ new album from Grovesnor. In fact it’s so hot they even dig it in Austria. Dan is a tongue in cheek song about the dangers of falling in love with your best friend’s girl. It comes with a great video by soon-tobe- big director Adam Watson that makes it all so clear.
With it’s ‘smooth’ and sophisticated sound that recalls Hall and Oates at their best and yet with that modern sheen that befits a member of Hot Chip— Rob aka Grovesnor is a long time member of the Chipsters—Dan is as catchy as hell and has a great guitar solo. Damn it’s ‘hot’.
Also on the EP are some great remixes courtesy of Ghostly’s latest boy wonder Mux Mool, electronic funksters Loose Fit and man of the moment Debruit who turns previous single ‘Taxi’ into a 21st century soul classic.
