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.

Catch Dan Croll at the following shows:

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