Damn It All
London based folk-rocker John Dartnell takes to the stage once more with a brand new single. Damn It All is a song taken from the forthcoming new album, expected later this year. Having toured the UK and the USA on the back of several albums already, John Dartnell has an established fan-base of good taste around the globe. With a new song like Damn It All, it only makes sense that this crowd of Dartnell darlings will grow in number. Writing and singing his way into the music halls of city after city, this trooper of talent just keeps going.
Opening on a cool bluesy country guitar lick, the rhythm backs up a slinky steel string melody. The music fades to let him sing, John Dartnell starts the story of one time when he was with you. The fond memories take us on the same journey he had one time, such a journey that made a lasting impression on his spirit. An acoustic guitar strums a chord progression with picked notes to emphasise certain phrases. The chorus breaks in and reminds us of heartache, when we can't be with the person who made us feel so happy. Is it just for the moment, or is it for the rest of time? I think it's not quite certain, and that's maybe the hardest bit of all. This is one of the most moving songs I've heard in a while.
