I forge songs in a furnace and temper them with icy lyrics. It’s raw and honest. It’s music from the edge. I am a songsmith creating music for outsiders, songs for the brave. It’s what I call Fringe Rock.

LATEST RELEASE: Cookin’ in the Sun

Riffing on a story of how he ended up with major sunburn and a swollen face for his wedding day, Dazzle Rebel brings his quirky A-game for his summer Post-Punk smash n’ grab, Cookin’ in the Sun.

With a grumbling of 80s New Wave angst and a healthy dose of 90s feel-good Alt-Rock sunshine, the main melody is indicative of those halcyon days of youthful abandon. Meanwhile, the lyrics paint a fun tale of spending too long in the sunshine. Cookin in the Sun is a fun Post-Punk/Alt-Rock sunkissed romp.

It’s available in two versions; the standard release (yellow artwork) has explicit lyrics whereas the Radio Edit (blue artwork) has clean lyrics and also contains a Karaoke version so that you can sing your own cover version!

*I’m not a fan of ReverbNation and I rarely update it with new music as I don’t believe it represents value for money (not least you can’t upload anything larger than 8mb without a pro account). If enough people actively engage with me on that platform I might reconsider my stance on the platform.
