DAN GRIFFIN – “BORDERTOWN” LTD EDITION TAPE FOR CASSETTE STORE DAY 2014

BUY ‘BORDERTOWN’ LTD EDITION TAPE BY DAN GRIFFIN HERE

It was in January this year when I first came across Dan Griffin. I had gratefully stumbled across a song called “The Hum” and it pretty much blew my mind. Here was a tune that was equal parts CHVRCHES and Bruce Springsteen. Springsteen for its small town dreams of escapism, CHVRCHES for its electronic heartbeat, forcing the narrative along to it’s synthy conclusion. I was fascinated by the story behind the song, as I had learnt of this strange phenomenon throughout my many years reading the Fortean Times. In certain cities in America (It’s normally America) an eerie hum can be heard with no known source. Some people can hear it, while others can’t. Some put it down to ambient animal noises, but there is a large portion of people out in the mid-west that believe its something otherworldly.


“Bordertown” the title track from the EP. Ace!

What is somewhat supernatural is the amount of time I have spent banging on about this EP to everyone I meet. Friends, Family, Felines, have all been press-ganged into flying the Dan Griffin flag, and here is why you should buy it. It’s an EP you will never stop listening to. It already sounds like a classic and I almost don’t want to hear an album as it might tarnish this, my perfect listening experience.
