Dan Croll Shares New Single ‘Slip Away’

British singer and songwriter Dan Croll has just shared his brand new single Slip Away, the latest single to be taken from his upcoming studio album Fools, out on May 19th via Communion Records. 
Slip Away beautifully illustrates the more groove-laden direction Croll is taking on his latest collection. I am really enjoying the soaring guitar lines, steady drum patterns and cool rhythms that together create an overall warm atmosphere for Croll's smooth vocals to soar. Slip Away is a captivating indie-pop song about the fatigue and struggles Dan fel over the past year with his move to the US; questioning if spending his savings, being far away from his loved ones and living without healthcare is really worth it. We all have those moments when we second guess our decisions but we shouldn't slip away into a more simpler existence just because it's easier. This is quite a memorable listening experience with infectious melodies and an overall laid-back atmosphere perfect for a chill weekend!
Adding about Slip Away, Dan Croll said, 
I recently hit my five-year milestone of living in Los Angeles, and “Slip Away” is about the fatigue and struggle I’ve felt over the past year. It’s frequently had me questioning how realistic it is to carry on living here, and whether draining my savings, living without healthcare, and being so far away from home/family is really worth it. I found myself on occasions fantasizing about throwing in the towel and slipping away into a much simpler life, a life possibly even outside of the music industry. Having been in music my entire adult life, a part of me has wondered whether I could ever exist outside of it. A 9-to-5 job has always been something I’ve seen from the outside looking in, and to me, the structure and steadiness have always been so attractive. “Slip Away” is about the lure of escaping to a simpler existence.


Slip Away’s accompanying video was shot entirely by Dan on a go-pro. Speaking about the process and inspiration he explains
Having been self-employed pretty much my whole life, I constantly find myself burning out and craving structure or some sense of normalcy. “Slip Away” as a song was a way for me to vent some of those frustrations, and the video more so a way to document them through my normal week.
I grabbed a GoPro and took it all over town with me over the course of a week. I didn’t want to just focus on the negatives like constantly sitting in LA traffic, so instead highlighted some of the ways that I escape these ruts that I can frequently find myself in by running, cycling, and generally being outdoors. It was a cathartic way of displaying the slightly chaotic nature of being freelance and trying to find some sort of space and order within it all.
