On February 12th 2013, Darwin Deez released “Songs For Imaginative People”, his follow up to the successful eponymous debut, which featured the singles “Constellations”, “Radar Detector” and “Up In the Clouds”, which all became UK hits. Entirely self-recorded and produced in Asheville, North Carolina, then mixed in London with Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Eugene McGuiness), the songs now come with a fantastically beefed up sound to create probably the most fascinating and thrilling record you’ll hear next year, revealing new textures and layers of sonic and lyrical genius upon each repeat listen. His songs – delightfully twisted, gorgeously off kilter slices of perfect pop meanwhile, are naturally nothing less than absolutely captivating too, sort of like Arthur Russell if someone spiked his drinks with happy pills. Caged Animals, and Cleveland’s unique underground glam-punk duo The Very Knees will shake you like a Polaroid picture.
