I’ll be brief, I Iove this. I hadn’t heard of Darrin Bradbury til this morning and now i’m hooked. I love the simplicity, the lyrics, the honesty, the wit, the vibe, the voice, the slide guitar, the country flavour, the lot.
This is his 2nd single we’re told, so i’ll be eagerly seeking out the first as I have seen that he is also playing my UK hometown in November, so I’ll be going – even just to hear this little ditty. Luckily for me and any others more ahead of the game here, his new album is due out before he hits these shores as Talking Dogs & Atom Bombs, is slated for release on September 20th via ANTI- Records. He will join Texas songwriter Jarrod Dickenson for a UK tour beginning in London, following U.S. dates supporting John Moreland (full schedule below).
There’s no point waxing lyrical any further, its a wonderfully simple song that any of us could have written sitting at the breakfast table.. but most of us haven’t got the imagination, simplicity is a skill.
