London-based singer-songwriter Douglas Dare releases his debut album 'Whelm' on Erased Tapes. With the piano at the core, Dare vocalises his short prose and poems to a backdrop of drums, electronics and brass... It was in November last year that the duo Douglas Dare and producer/percussionist Fabian Prynn decided to record an album, and by January they were listening to it. Finding themselves out of the home-studio for the first time, the pair recorded much of the album in Flood's studio Assault & Battery in West London. Other touches were recorded back in Fabian's home. With the comfort of familiar songs from his live set, such as Clockwork, Caroline and London's Rose, the session was equally driven by the excitement of creating brand new tracks like Nile, Swim and Unrest in a new environment.
