Dazzle Rebel’s music is juxtaposed with social satire and a more intimate introspective, asking familiar questions about what it is to be human. It’s an alternative rock, post-grunge, new-wave revival. It’s not music by numbers, it’s songs from the soul.

LATEST RELEASE: Swan Song (Radio Edit)

Towards the end of the year 2000, I was in a pretty low place. I was fresh out of 6th form and working double shifts as a bar and restaurant manager. On top of feeling that I had no direction in life, I was in the middle of breaking up with my first love.

The music and lyrics have barely changed since then, just a few tweaks here and there. For me, this song is very much like looking back in time to my 18-year-old self. It’s sometimes difficult to look back at the person you was in the past but it’s also good to see how much you’ve grown.

For those reasons I really struggled with the thought of releasing this track but it’s one of the best songs I wrote during that era and I really wanted to just get it out there in the world.
