Dhani Harrison teases new LP and single ahead of October Release
Synth Pop meets Psychedelic Rock in Harrison’s new single
We have been given a preview of what’s to come in Dhani Harrison’s up coming debut LP ‘IN///PARALLEL’ with new song ‘All About Waiting’, and it’s everything you would expect from the son of late Beatle George Harrison. A song reminiscent of both ELO and George Harrison’s ‘Brainwashed’, Dhani has stuck true to his roots, but has also branched out into synth pop. A genre becoming ever more popular with current bands.
The debut album of ex thenewno2 and Fistful Of Mercy member is set for release on October 6th, featuring 10 tracks, that he quotes are ‘echoing his influences over past few years as a composer’, and album artwork that would make his late, great father pleased, as it shows his religious side.
Back to ‘All About Waiting’. A song laced with intricate vocal harmonies, accompanied by pulsing synths and a rolling drum rhythm, that turns into a whole bunch of triplet fills for the chorus of this exciting electro-psychedelia, where the drums are joined by a bunch of ooh’s and ah’s, similar to that of ELO, George Harrison, and Late Beatles. The lyrics question life, and everything that there is to it, as if it should have been on his father’s ‘Brainwashed’ album.
This LP will be a step in the right direction for Dhani Harrison, after years of success with other bands, and composing for film, it is finally time that Dhani shows the world what he is capable of on his own. And by the sounds of this first single, the album really will be a showcase of everything Harrison is capable of, and will hopefully continue the Harrison’s family trip in musical history, and there is no reason why it shouldn’t be up there with the great albums his late father featured on. As long as it is received well by his fans and by music critics, Dhani should have no problem in getting himself recognised as a solo artist with this album, that is of course, if the rest of the album is as catchy and as punchy as this first single.
The announcement of this single and LP also came with a minute long teaser video for the rest of the album, which lays off the synths, still has lyrics that question everything, finger-picked guitar melodies, and of course, a whirlwind of a guitar solo.
I really believe that this album is going to be one to remember. It’s something different but at the same time, something people are familiar with.
