Win Darwin Deez Albums

Entirely self-recorded and produced in Asheville, North Carolina, then mixed in London with Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Eugene McGuiness), "Songs For Imaginative People", is the most fascinating and thrilling record you'll hear this year, as Darwin flexes his muscles and moves into unashamedly uncharted territory. We have copies up for grabs!

It's there lyrically, as he explores his solidarity with existentialism (on first single "Free (The Editorial Me")), and, uses the schizoid blast of "(800) HUMAN" as a "prayer for deliverance from the existential inauthenticity of laziness and submission". His penchant for irresistible melodies is present and correct too, as in "You Can't Be My Girl", which is, in essence, a glorious paean to a damaged, and impossible, relationship "you're sweet but you're messed up/ your best friend is a red cup". Whilst, equally anthemic, 'Redshift' cleverly uses big-bang metaphor to poignantly dissect the pain of break-up, "Was there a big bang that I just missed? Did an explosion cause a redshift? 'cos you're moving away from me, what did I do? The Universe is just an empty space without you".

This is a record so obviously connected with the artist's life, a record any soul can feel on every level. Witness also "Chelsea's Hotel", where rhyming couplets representing the romantic polarity of pursuit pinch the skin akin to stretching the sonnets of John Donne: "I'm not leaving, this is just the place, I've been homeless since the dimples on her simple face. And I've spent my fortune, I've torn the town apart, to build a hotel on her heart".

We're just scratching the surface. Ultimately, this is Darwin Deez MK II - his deepest, most personal and innovatively inspiring record to date.
