Danny George releases “Bloodletting”
Following on from the success of his Complex supported single “Sincerity”, Danny George returns with another stand out track, an introspective song detailing a narrative of dependence. “Bloodletting” continues to demonstrate the young producer’s prowess as an instrumentalist as well as a maturing song writer with an effervescent soul, expertly capturing the feeling of falling in and out of love in this modern digital age. “I wanted to encapsulate the ecstatic feeling of exploiting an urge you know you shouldn’t. Without giving too much away to what the song means to me, it centres around the story of someone with an addiction, doing whatever it takes to get to that place and the nirvana they reach when they get to it”.
Seemingly always onto the next project at hand, Danny has been making waves as a producer and writer these last few years, working with promising newcomers Ayelle, Malory and Latir amongst others. The resulting music has garnered him a PRS for Music Production Music Award (2019 – Best Acoustic/Pop Rock Track) as well as write ups by Wonderland, Clash, The 405, The Line of Best Fit and Dork. With his own music now very much in the forefront, George is quickly emerging as an artist in his own right. His first two solo tracks “Close To You” and “Say Something” helped cement his place as one to watch after being picked up by leading YouTube channels Nourish. and Apeiron – these uploads have culminated in over a million streams, with “Say Something” gaining over 165,000 Spotify streams so far.
“Bloodletting” is the fourth single from Danny’s “Crushed Comfort” EP – the complete project is scheduled for an April release. Honing his talent over the last few years in the melting pot of London, Danny George uprooted to the vibrant creative haven of Berlin to further compliment his search for inspiration and creativity. With a hard drive full of unreleased material, the British born singer dived into his eclectic mix of influences to create a signature genre-bending style of his own. Combining his love for live instrumentation, sampling and the organic use of field recordings, he creates a warm, sultry bed of sound that falls into place overtop his lush and colourful arrangements.
Defined by its title as an oxymoron, detailing the dangerous parallels of comfort and chaos, the “Crushed Comfort” EP takes you on a journey through the demise of a relationship at its crossroads. Self-produced by George, with him taking the lead role in every aspect of its creation, the record is a debut not to be missed. With plenty more material to follow, this first EP is an ellipsis of sorts to pave the way for George’s exploration through even more sonic landscapes. Danny’s work as a producer for Malory has also recently gained him a PRS for Music Production Music Award (2019 – Best Acoustic/Pop Rock Track). During this time he’s also found success producing award-nominated compositions for film and TV.
