Album Review: Dan Kelly - Leisure Panic

"A kaleidoscopic listening experience."

More Dan Kelly More Dan Kelly

Dan Kelly has hit his finest streak of songwriting on his latest solo album.

There's a sense of pop wonderment about these songs as they diversify into all kinds of colourful shapes. Sometimes it's dripping with sweet soul (Haters), drifting on a cloud of dream-pop (National Park And Wildlife) or hitting interstellar overdrive on the epic, pulsing krautrock of On The Run. The psychedelic flavour of Kelly's music shares a sonic footprint with Beck, The Clean, Pavement and The Phoenix Foundation. The sweet effervescent melodies are backed with incisive and often humorous lyrics, a combo that makes this a kaleidoscopic listening experience.
