This Fringe Rock Song Will Have You Dancin’ In Your Speedos! – New Music Friday

New Single, Cookin’ in the Sun – Out Now!

13th May 2022

Cookin’ in the Sun” is available on all major platforms.

Hey! My brand new single, Cookin’ in the Sun is out today! I had so much fun writing, recording and producing this track. In true Fringe Rock, DIY fashion I did everything on this release myself. Everything to do with the music right through to the artwork was done by my own hands.

I even made my directorial debut when making the music video. I mean, technically I suppose every music video I’ve produced was directed by myself but this is the first one where I was directing other people. Speaking of whom, a huge thank you to the great sports that gave up their Bank Holiday Sunday afternoon to be filmed doing crazy things in front of a camera.

So here’s a big shout out to Jason for letting us film in the upstairs function room at Ye Olde Salutation Inn, Nottingham. Of course, I need to acknowledge “the girls” Lisa, Celina and Gemma. Adi and Ali for the shots they took on holiday and Gill for taking some awesome stills.

Here’s the video, which will premiere at 8pm GMT, so if it’s not there yet you can click to set a reminder and be one of the first to see it!

The song is me riffing on a story of how I ended up with major sunburn and a swollen face on my wedding day. It’s also a farcical take on how we Brits are never satisfied with the weather. It’s either too cold, too wet or too hot! There is also a subtle nod to the fact that we’re finally seeing the negative effects of climate change in action. I mean, you’d be a blithering idiot not to recognise what’s going on in the world but I’ve already hit that subject matter pretty hard in the past. Twice in fact; with This Burning Town and Four Horsemen from The Attic Transmission. Songs that I wrote way back in the 00s. Will we ever learn?

Anyway, if you want to hear more about the story behind this song I’ll be going into more detail in a later post. To make sure you never miss a post, enter your email below and subscribe. Posts will be sent direct to your inbox and I’ll never sell off your info or spam you. I hate spam, it’s not effective and it’s very annoying so I’d never do that to you either!

In the meantime why not give the song a listen on your streaming service of choice. If you like it then I’d sure appreciate if you’d save it or even add it to one of your playlists? Maybe even download it FOR FREE on my Bandcamp page, so that you can keep it forever?

Regardless, thank you for supporting independent music and have a great weekend!

New Single: Cookin’ in the Sun, coming 13th May!

PRESS RELEASE

29th April 2022

Dazzle Rebel announces a brand new summer single that will have you sizzling in your speedos!

Cookin’ in the Sun” releases on all major platforms on 13th May 2022.

Fringe Rock songsmith Dazzle Rebel strikes a match and turns the hob up to nuclear fusion with his latest, irreverent post-punk rocker. If you’re looking for even more heat this summer, simply put on this track for an instant blast of feelgood radiation. You’ll be dancing around in your speedos and like it’s 1994.

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 and suffering for it. Cookin’ in the Sun is a fun Post-Punk/Alt-Rock sunkissed romp that grabs your attention with a catchy hook and a 2-minute runtime.

Cookin’ in the Sun will be released on all major platforms on Friday 13th May 2022. There will be two versions, the standard version with explicit lyrics and the Radio Edit that includes a karaoke version as a B-Side!
