Darwin Deez - 10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart
Published: 2:33 pm, August 30, 2018Words: Dillon Eastoe.

Best known for his late 00s hit ‘Radar Detector’, Darwin Deez has quietly carved out a career writing smart indie pop ditties that worm their way into the consciousness. Alongside his fantastic live shows, Deez has kept himself steadily releasing albums, although he is unlikely to bother major radio again. 

Now on his fourth record, the New Yorker is a master of his craft, combining multi-tracked vocals with Casio drum beats and his signature airy vocals. The titular ten songs on '10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart' buzz with an energy that belies the honesty of the lyrics. 

The stronger emphasis on keyboards channels fellow 00s chart bothered Owl City, while a muted trumpet solo on ‘Drive Around’ provides a welcome diversion. And anyone who closes their album with a song called 'Daddy Always' is highly deserving of our praise.
