Daniel Romano, ‘Empty Husk’ – Single Review

Daniel Romano has released new song ‘Empty Husk’ as the first single of his upcoming album ‘Finally Free’, yet again surprising everyone with his seemingly endless creativity to write new material.

The Canadian, who is well known for – to put it someway – not entirely following the music industry’s rules, has been pretty busy lately. On November 30 he is putting out his third studio album so far this year, via New West Records.

The new track follows the style seen on his critically acclaimed ‘Modern Pressure’, released in 2017. However, this track is much more tranquil overall, although its got a bit of Romano craziness at the end.

Following ‘Modern Pressure’ – which brought great tracks such as ‘Roya’, ‘The Pride of Queens’ and ‘Ugly Human Heart’ part one and two – and maybe because he is as much a musician as an artist, he put out two new albums on his Bandcamp page.

‘Human Touch’ and ‘Nerveless’, which are not in the singer’s Spotify account, are difficult to find now as they have been deleted from the page, and were on download only when they were released.

‘Bring Me To The War’ is the opening track of the first, and can be found on a YouTube video with not even 1,000 views. None of the two albums is even listed to buy in the singer’s website.

‘Modern Pressure’ was the sequel of ‘Mosey’, released in 2016. But before that Romano came out with Ancient Shapes, a new project that so far has one album out. He’s still touring extensively with this Ramone-esque band whose songs only go beyond two minutes long on two occasions.

Ancient Shapes will be touring Europe October and November, stopping in the UK from October 15 to October 22. Follow Daniel Romano here.
