Today we welcome a new artist to our roster, Dan Stock. A talented songwriter with a confident swagger, here we have the first track ‘Baby Valentino’ from his forthcoming EP.
A young man from Milton Keynes, Stock talks about this emotionally charged track:
“Baby Valentino is a love story set in a city centre at night. It’s a result of countless nights out in Milton Keynes looked at through my romantic imagination. I love writing lyrics that are about mundane, everyday situations but have a bit of magic thrown in. I guess that comes from my obsession with writers like Jarvis Cocker, I’ve always loved his way of thinking that “Nobody needs to know where reality ends and wishful-thinking takes over.” Hearing him say that really changed the way I approached writing lyrics.”
LISTEN TO THE TRACK HERE:
The track is accompanied by an appropriately stark, stripped back and beautifully shot video directed by acclaimed BAFTA winning director Kieran Evans (Kelly + Victor, the Manic Street Preachers documentary ,Culture, Alienation, Boredom and Despair and Dexys: Nowhere Is Home).
