DANNY L HARLE TO RELEASE BROKEN FLOWERS EP
AVAILABLE FRIDAY 20th NOVEMBER, 2015
LISTEN TO FIRST SINGLE ‘FOREVER’
PC Music & Columbia Records are excited announce the release of Danny L Harle’s BROKEN FLOWERS EP, available on 20th November through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
With its electronic sheen and avant-pop sensibilities, BROKEN FLOWERS is already a poorly kept secret amongst the music underground, and feather in PC Music’s cap. Harle originally composed the song to play in his DJ set. A huge fan of 1990s dance tracks such as Haddaway’s ‘What Is Love’ and Corona’s ‘Rhythm Is A Dancer’, he wanted a song of his own to play alongside them. The result was BROKEN FLOWERS: both a paean to the past, and the sound of something modern.
“Pop music in itself is super-crazy,” says Harle.”It’s on the brink of insanity. And what I have always been hoping to do is just push it that little bit further, to complete insanity.”
The BROKEN FLOWERS EP is the calling card for a distinctly individual artist. It boasts three new tracks, the first of which, ‘Forever’, debuts today. Harle considers the song a rival to BROKEN FLOWERS for melody and impact, whilst the third track, ‘Without You’, is a more complex construction, less up-tempo. The final track is ‘Awake For Hours’, a heady rework of BROKEN FLOWERS by Harle himself.
Founded by A. G. Cook, PC Music is home to a close-knit collective of performers and electronic musicians including Hannah Diamond, Kane West and Dux Content (a collaboration between Cook and Harle), as well as associate projects such as XL Recordings’ artist QT.
All these artists share a fascination with the immediately gratifying aspects of commercial chart music, delivering passionate pop jams. To quote VICE, PC Music “dominated” the last twelve months, earning FACT Magazine’s “label of the year” award and being dubbed one of Resident Advisor’s top five labels. It was the subject of a Guardian Guide cover profile in the summer, whilst the New York Times dubbed its groundbreaking Pop Cube event in the city in May “a high-concept extravaganza”.
