Check out this rather beautiful live session...
Dan Croll

Dan Croll is a powerful songwriter.

His work manages to be emotive without ever straying into the maudlin, fusing disparate elements - a little folk, a little electro-pop, say - into a seamless whole.

Set to release a new Ben Allen-produced album later this year, Dan Croll has been teasing fans with new material.

'Away From Today' is a work of real maturity, the lyrical touch seeming to twist in and out while obeying that keening, infectious melody.

Clash has obtained a stripped down live session version of the song, recorded just a short while ago.

The arrangement is cut back to the core, with Dan Croll strumming a 12 string guitar while his voice flips and leaps over each word.

Stunningly creative, you can tune in now.

12 Glasgow Stereo
13 Leeds The Wardrobe
14 Manchester Sound Control
16 London Heaven
17 Birmingham Mama Roux’s
18 Bristol Thekla
