Canterbury’s lo-fi pop musician Daniel Keane creates melody and madness as he draws on early naughties themes to promote a rich sound of indie pop.
Daniel Keane shared new offering ‘Sainsbury’s Girl’ earlier this year which squeezes in as many words as he could into a two and a half minute pop song. It discusses everything from French protests and rape culture, to drug taking and his own relationship. Musically the track takes cues from indie acts Bloc Party, Squeeze and Arctic Monkeys, with rhythms taken from 808 patterns.
Inspired by a range of influences The Smiths, Lorde and even Kanye West, Daniel’s music is characterised by stick in your head with his bellowing vocals and melodies.
Daniel draws from themes of early 20s paranoia to British nightlife through joyous lo-fi pop. He said: “My mission statement is melody and madness, I want to create catchy infectious pop, while discussing my scattered fractured dumb young brain.”
Daniel is releasing an EP soon which will feature the single and see him progress further from his previous material, confronting and delving deeper into his history with battling mental health.
