A Dancing Beggar – Follow The Dark As If It Were Light
These seven songs are journeys rather than standard arrangements of verses and choruses, as James takes a more subtle approach to writing by applying soft piano loops, field recordings and tender vocals. Follow The Dark As If It Were Light marks a change in direction for A Dancing Beggar, focusing on a more personal sound, crafted out of homemade samples, ambient drones and delicate piano melodies, and has been compared to the likes of Sigur Ros and Grouper.
Fluid Radio: “Simmons has a firm grasp of what he is trying to achieve with this album and has such a strong sense of melody that he really does offer up something special here. As an artist Simmons has such a deep well of great melodies to draw from; he deserves credit for being brave enough to invest so many into each song.”
It is a beautiful album packaged in a gatefold digipak retailing for £7 direct from the audiobulb shop.
