THE DANANS: Jon Sinnots Indie//Americana//Pop outfit return for their Xmas shabang! Their wonderfully evocative and effortless sounding tunes have drawn comparisons with the likes of James Taylor, Van Morrison and Adam Duritz. The Bristol band have auspicious knack of crafting catchy and immediate tunes that not only get the listener hooked straight away but also have the substance and depth to ensure they remain a permanent fixture in your head and on the car-stereo.
Tracks like the thumping ‘She is the light’ and ‘Arm n Arm’ will get the head bobbing and heart pumping and are reminiscent of Wild Honey-era Beach Boys and The Kinks, whilst sweeter ballads like ‘Something That You Do’ and ‘The Wheel’ will wheedle there way into your affections with their touches of The Band and Neil Young’s Harvest.
Their Debut album ‘Giving up the Ghost’ was recorded at Robot Club Studios in Bristol and Rockfield Studios in Monmouth. It was produced by Stew Jackson and Dan Brown of Robot Club whose recent production/writing credits include Will Young, Massive Attack, Skin (Skunk Anansie) and Phantom Limb. The album won them a lot of friends. Get down to the Thunderbolt on Fri Dec 2nd and check em out!
"An admirable combination of thought and charisma... Sinnott has an assured storyteller's manner" -Francis Harvey, Evening Post
"Driving, tuneful Americana, complete with Hammond organ, last summer lyrics and goofy charm aplenty. Just the right amount of well-honed rawk chaos too. Music for highways and convertibles this: unsurprisingly it sounded pretty good in a sun-soaked beer-stewed field." - Venue Magazine
