As lead singer and main creative force behind The Guillemots, you might have spotted Fyfe Dangerfield playing guitar, keyboard, dustbin lid (yes, really), or just singing in his distinctive, octave-spanning voice as part of the orchestral-indie four-piece.
Perhaps in search of further creative outlets (isn't that the usual reason?), he's been making strides as a solo artist and will be dropping by the Scala
on 21 January.With a new record out the same week, this is a great chance to sample his material for yourself and - for a head start - a few tracks are available on MySpace
now. They sound pretty similar to The Guillemots in places, especially Faster Than The Setting Sun
, which could be straight off the band's first album.Not that this is a bad thing: actually, we really rate that record and reckon Dangerfield's stuff has a poppier feel which should work well live. Ok, so you're not likely to be moshing, but he's a talented, versatile musician and it'll be interesting to see how he performs solo in the vertiginous Kings Cross venue.Fyfe Dangerfield plays Scala in Kings Cross on 21 January. Tickets are available now
for £12.50. (Image / leah pritchard under a Creative Commons Attribution licence.)
