EP08 -Teenage Waitress AKA Daniel J. Ash – Love & Chemicals – Paul Weller Fan Podcast : Desperately Seeking Paul
2020 – Teenage Waitress – Debut LP – Love & Chemicals
In Daniel’s own words Love and Chemicals plays like a collection of short stories or vignettes.
“I wanted to create something of a musical patchwork quilt with all sorts of different textures, styles and emotions. I had been writing music for a guitar – based indie band for many years but these songs were my first written with a computer. I loved the freedom of being able to write and experiment with a whole range of different instruments from the accordion to drum machines, from the kazoo to the spoons – they’re all in there somewhere and can really help with setting the scene with some of the stories on the album. I really wanted to work outside my comfort zone both musically and lyrically. It’s by far the best thing I’ve ever done and I’m very excited to see where I can go next.”
A 12 track raw explosion of contagious synth based indie pop. This colourful album features the previous singles I Don’t Like This Party , The Mess You Made Me Make You Ain’t Got It Bad (feat. Blue Canary) and I’m Leaving Berlin , songs which have all enjoyed praise and airplay from the likes of Radio X and BBC London.
