Dan Croll’s music is infectious, and the dance floor is ground 0. Just 22-years-old, he’s made waves in his native UK with his sweet indie melodies and sleek synthpop-stylings and those waves are pouring across the pond and right into your almost-Friday ears. He took the last song off last year’s Emerging Adulthood, offered it up to some of his favorite musicians and producers, and collected the remixes onto their own Tokyo EP, out last November. “Tokyo” doesn’t usher you to get up and dance, it commands it. Ignited with full energy right out of the gate, the song makes you feel like you just threw open the door to a huge cool-kids party already in full swing, sweeping you into the deluge of synthpop and fun energy from the first note. Stay out late, break curfew, and get down!
“Tokyo” appears on Emerging Adulthood and Tokyo EP, both out now.
