Danny Malone brings us a vision of how the rock star life needs to be lived in his video for 'Spiderlegs.'
Unwilling to commit to genre, Malone seamlessly crosses lines between folk, indie, electro, even hip-hop, a mash-up of pop and lock with ballet set to 4 track instrumental indie post rock, (No Keys) a genre Malone categorizes as "future folk / sexy depression." Malone never takes himself too seriously and has enough off-kilter edge to pull it off. (Austin Chronicle)
Malones second full-length release, Balloons, was recorded in a haunted castle in Denmark, creating a magical atmosphere to unlock his "WTF mesmerizing" (Indie Sounds) brand of genius. Malone (who played all instruments) and producer Mattie Smith recorded all 10 songs in 10 days, each in a different room of the castle, using sounds that they found or created for all of the drum sounds, such as slamming a piano lid shut for the snare drum sound and stomping the floor for the bass drum. The result is "An emotional, powerful tour-de-force of vulnerable personal biography and insightful musings about life." (Music Worth Reviewing)
