Daniel Taylor is the latest in a long line of exciting musicians to emerge out of Brighton this year. His Sulky Boy project is linked with de-facto kings of the scene The Magic Gang, and he plays bass in the interlinked Home School band. The Magic Gang’s own Paeris Giles also produces his latest track, ‘French Kiss’.
Following on from the similarly romantic ‘Carmela’, this number goes the whole hog, tongues and everything. If serenading isn’t enough to woo a particular someone, it’s scientifically proven that woozy chords and loved-up vocals work as a modern day cupid’s arrow. Taylor’s caught up in his own lovey intentions here, but he’s also wound up with a song that’s schooled in a Mac DeMarco-approved charm offensive.
