Caroline/If Only

Limited 10 on Erased Tapes Londonbased singersongwriter Douglas Dare releases new EP following on from his debut album 'Whelm' Named after album track 'Caroline' and new track 'If I Knew I Were Alive' it also features remixes by fellow label mate Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles and Houndstooth's own electronic producer Ross Tones aka Throwing Snow 'Caroline' has always been a precious track for Douglas one of the first tracks he recorded and a story in which he imagines his grandfather is writing to a loved one during the war As the only song on his debut album that is stripped down to just his voice and piano playing and it being a favourite amongst fans at his concerts it was a natural choice as a first single The new track 'If I Knew I Were Alive' Douglas wrote by creating beats looping them and recording parts live Dancing around to the beats in his room he started singing melodies and coming up with ideas that he wouldn't usually have sitting at the piano The idea that we can do a lot more if only we appreciated our own ability and opportunity encouraged Douglas to not take the track to anyone else to rerecord it but to work with what he had created himself The cover photograph was taken by Douglas Dare himself printed on silver card so that the seawater shimmers against the light.
