DANNY STARR RELEASES AFFECTING BREAK-UP SONG "OUR DESIGN"

February 26, 2020

 

Danny Starr has been generating buzz in his native UK for a while now, playing shows around London, getting glowing reviews, and building a dedicated fanbase of streamers. He’s been writing songs since he was 13, and has built a reputation for clever and classic songwriting. Introducing his new single: Our Design.

 

Our Design is a sad and thoughtful break-up song. As with the best pop songs, the lyrics are best summed up by the chorus: “When was the last time you looked in my eyes? Felt a shiver run down your spine. Blind to the flaws in our design.” The song eloquently captures the mutual ending of a relationship.  

 

Acoustic guitar is supported by a mid-tempo trashy drum beat and garnished with layers of electric guitar and synth. The highlight of the track is Danny’s affecting yowl of a voice; crisp and potent and raw. 

 

If you like music that makes you feel feelings, this is one to check out.

Adam Hender’s “I Don’t Mind” is a sulky ode to selfless, unconditional love. He croons his desire to see an unrequited love happy, even apart from him. As hopeless as his cause is, I’m sure its a position almost all of us have been in, one time or another.
