Imagine prepping all of your raw material for the studio, beginning the recording of your first full length debut and then your father dies in a tragic accident. This is exactly what happened to Adam Burnett of Dangermaker.
The product, Black Dream, is Burnett's original cuts smeared with a layer of darkness. The first single, "You're Not There," alludes to the awful situation in name alone, but even more in Burnett's repeated chants of "I'm still here." The promo video for the rock track takes a different stance as a mime struggles to entertain people in and around Chinatown. While both points of view are rather drab, I think I prefer the true story to the miserable mime. Judge for yourself below.
You can catch the San Francisco foursome later this spring at Hotel Utah on April 21st and at Bottom of the Hill on May 19th.
