Danny L Harle: Broken Flowers

“Teardrops feel like showers / I thought I was free / Lying awake for hours / With just your broken flowers.” These loaded, somber lyrics juxtapose with effervescent arpeggiated synths, a bouncy upbeat tempo, and a female vocalist (Ellen Roberts) not of our world—and that is the beauty of Danny L Harle’s moving-or-trivial pop song “Broken Flowers.” Though an early version of the song has been out for some time, the British producer has given it a tweak for his first release under Columbia Records. Broken Flowers drops today with four songs featuring a “remix” of Broken Flowers called “Awake for Hours”—an endurance test that, if you pass, will initiate you into the cult that is PC Music.
