Track of the day #765: Dan Lyons – Thin Black Duke

Dan Lyons - Thin Black DukeThis infectious indie-rock track ‘Thin Black Duke‘ comes from Dan Lyons and it’s one of my favourite tracks taken from his debut solo album release ‘SubSuburbia‘! It’s a commanding, nostalgia soaked track that’s pinned down by hypnotic piano and melancholy-tinged vocals.

Speaking of the track, Dan Lyons has said: “It’s a three chord ditty in the style of lots of my favourite bands… It’s about a guy who’s out of control hedonistic, insisting that he’s the king of rock ’n’ roll and trying to pull his lover down with him into the abyss. His conscience gets the better of him and he eventually gives up and decides that she’s better off just hanging out with her friends”.
