Following on from their superb EP Riding the Flood, Dandelion Charm have returned with their new single “Stephanie”. As fans have come to expect the Dandies have delivered a song that is rich and textured.
“Stephanie” is sweet and light, but with a melancholy undertone. They paint pictures in the air with their breathtaking melodies and their engaging lyrics. This is a song that requires multiple listenings to fully appreciate it. There are layers here, as each layer is revealed it hints that there is yet more to discover.
For me the Dandelion Charm belong to the troubadour school. Their music has an old quality about it. It invokes the imagery of roadside taverns, villages fairs and a little bit of magic. It is poetry set to music. Bottom line they are a treasure and a treat to listen to.
“Stephanie” is already getting considerable airplay across the better indie stations and is bound to be a huge hit for them. It goes on sale on Saturday 6 April 2019.
