Emerging soul/RnB sensation Dan Caplen has unveiled his brilliant new single “Two Fingers”. Premiered via Radio 1Xtra on long-time supporter DJ Target’s show last night, the track is released via Atlantic Records and is available now on all digital platforms.
A follow up to his brilliant single “Flat Champagne”, which featured Ray BLK and was released earlier this year, the Brixton-based, classically trained musician shimmers on “Two Fingers”, a track that instantly hits the ear drums with a rhythmic funk-fuelled groove and heartfelt underlying message exploring the experiences and temptations of those young and in love amidst a city backdrop:
“Two Fingers is about relationships in a big city… Temptation to stray is as easy as a swipe right on your phone, but I still believe that love overrules…” reveals Caplen.
Stepping into the spotlight as an instant UK ‘One To Watch’, Dan Caplen was musically trained in Portland, Oregon, where he developed an undeniable technical ability as well as a penchant for sampling classic and charismatic sounds. The young Londoner of Caribbean descent feels as instantly accessible as he does sophisticated. Featuring on early tastemakers Pigeons & Planes, NME and Clash Magazine, as well as garnering support slots with the likes of George Ezra, Anne-Marie and Rag’N’Bone Man – Caplen is rapidly building a name for himself across many genres.
Dan Caplen continues to remind us that his authenticity, talent and rawness are real weapons to establish him as one of 2018’s hottest tips. Watch this exciting newcomer soar to bold new heights.
