With a vocal fortitude that’s both emotive and defiant, singer/songwriter Douglas Dare delivers a compelling narrative of love and deception in “New York,” his latest release. The single strikes an interspace between Patrick Wolf and what Damien Rice would sound like with industrial tinges. The video and its tech-driven animation, directed by Dan Jacobs, bolsters the beautiful darkness of the the lyrics. Dare’s forthcoming Aforger, on which “New York” appears, will be released on 14 October via Erased Tapes.
