Hushed vocals and intricate instrumentation make up the entrancing soundscape of Dean McMullen's new single 'Clouds Hold Up The Sun'. From the first listen, you feel like Dean is inviting you into his own world, it's an intimate and refreshing listening experience.
“I've been writing songs, whispering along to my guitar as quietly as possible for years so others didn’t stand a chance of hearing what I was up to. I always loved songwriting and I don’t know why I felt so uncomfortable with it. I guess I was brought up in a rather stoic English family where any sort of expression, apart from being polite, or any kind of emotion, apart from a polite smile, was uncomfortable. " - Dean shares more about his musicianship
“Anyway, one grey, London afternoon, when I was sure none of my housemates were in, I sat down on my mattress on the floor and out came ‘Clouds Hold Up The Sun’. Something felt different about the song compared to my previous ones and I was chuffed. Chuffed enough to make a demo of it, chuffed enough to even show it to a few people and then chuffed enough to get completely carried away and vow to write a whole record. Introducing my first solo single, ‘Clouds Hold Up The Sun’.” - he adds on the inspiration behind the track.
