"I lost my way home," admits Dan Croll on "Only Ghost" a silky, somber, and soaring gem from his EP, From Nowhere.
Simultaneously, the song serves as a love letter to the landscape and homage to a friend who passed away. The delicate balance of acoustic guitars and swirling production makes for a poetic and poignant moment.
However, the EP is comprised of poignant moments just like that one—not to mention topnotch songwriting. Whether it's the sunny title track whose world music bounce shimmies and shakes infectiously or the soulfully sweet "Compliment Your Soul", Croll's fusion of instrumental intricacy and massive melodies makes for elegant pop music with cinematic implications. Elsewhere, "Wanna Know" is downright danceable. He's the kind of artist who will make an "unconventional" yet undeniably catchy hit and rightfully become inescapable.
Croll's makes music that's both brilliant and beautiful. It's the start of a promising career for one of the most exciting new voices and songwriters on the scene. He's already home.
