You can’t take the fog city out of the boy. Taking a Chance on Love is the new David R. Elliott single from his forthcoming album Sunshine.
The Halifax-based, Saint John born singer/songwriter’s new single is a 50s dance throwback in his usual under-produced and under-appreciated grunge style. Fellow lo-fi Saint John ex-pat Adam Mowery contributes vocals and bass.
The B side sobers us up with Every Moment . The line, “There are worse things than being alone,” is shouted over anguished riffs, reminiscent of early ought’s indie rock unsuitable for a campus coffeehouse. I love it.
David hopes to release Sunshine in June with heavy touring Canada wide.
