Formally of The Dunwells, Leeds-based Dave Hanson has now decided to take a step in a slightly different direction with his latest solo project.
Fusing together an eclectic range of influences, including reggae rhythms and mellow, bluesy tones, Hanson’s debut record, Almost Horizontal, is sponsored by Cafe Nero – meaning they’ll be playing it at 3pm every day this month.
However, if you’re not a coffee drinker, you can listen to the EP for the first time here:
Almost Horizontal is out today and, to celebrate its release, Dave Hanson will be having a launch party in Leeds tonight, as well as touring Cafe Neros across the country:
