Darren Hanlon – ‘All These Things’


Darren Hanlon – ‘All These Things’ (mp3)

Listen to

There is something about Darren Hanlon and his music that makes me think he operates on a different plane to the rest of us; from a gentler time before self-promotion and social media and iTunes.

It could be the large, ornate, handmade diorama that I saw in Brisbane’s Rockinghorse Records promoting his new album, I Will Love You At All.

It could be the fact that he keeps putting out records regardless of whether the Aussie music press picks them up or not, delivering without bitterness.

It’s probably his music’s intrinsic sweetness and genuine delivery. Sure, it is a bit twee, but I think you take your chances when you write songs on a ukelele.

    It’s a really swell album overall, though not quite as tooth-achingly cute as the single.

    It’s a shame ‘Scenes From A Separation’ is a little too long to be a single, its just perfect.
