Pale Jacket by Dan Aston will warm you!
Another great month is here. The autumn leaves are falling and there are reflective songs that play in our heads as we move to darker and colder months. But that doesn’t mean that we will let summer go so easily. The new single by Dan Aston has that summery melody with lyrics that are really suited to the season.
” I haven’t felt this alive in so long…
My wheels will keep turning strong”
This brings a smile on my face as this is an unabashed tribute to young love. This reminds me of The Beatles before they got so big. Perhaps the world can be chaotic and grim outside but this doesn’t mean we cannot fall inside and look into our endless summer. As I grow older as a listener, I start to appreciate the beauty of life’s simplicity and all that surround us, be it people, places or things.
I’ve always found Dan Aston’s singing as honest and beautiful. He has a good vocal range which continues to improve with age. He is backed by amazing musicians. Everything about the recording is clean, tight and well executed. And oh, this lyric video is amazing!
Thoughts behind the song from the artist:
Dan Aston: Recorded at VIP Lounge earlier in September, it has been recorded and produced by Dare Mason (Placebo, The Church, The Blow Monkeys). I previously worked with Dare on my EP ‘The Way Home’.
The single features some stellar performances by musicians that have really brought this new arrangement of the song to life.
The band :
Dan Aston (vocals, guitars),
Jack Williams (piano),
Tristan Latarche (drums) and James Martin (bass).
