Dan Rico – North American Video Premiere “Dangerous”

Dan Rico‘s (EGO, MAMA) “Endless Love” is a stalled time machine initially headed back to the glam-power pop of the 70s but picking up all kinds of tricks from the 80s and 90s while settling back into 2017.

The record was released in North America on Maximum Pelt Records (Chicago) and in Europe by Shit In Can Records (Annecy, France) and “Dangerous” is the latest video.

Thanks to Raphael from Shit In Can Records for sending this our way.

In the center of Chicago’s Rock and Roll renaissance sits Dan Rico who pairs glammy punk rock with vintage pop crooning to arrive at a sound that splits the difference between David Cassidy and Marc Bolan. Rico’s self-produced debut LP, Endless Love, veers between snappy punk tunes and laid-back love ballads, spurred by Rolling Stones-y guitar licks, Prince-influenced vocal harmonies, and minimalist electronic elements. Drawing from the impressive garage, soul, and underground aesthetic catalogue of his hometown Endless Love juxtaposes a striking mix of styles beneath a unifying umbrella of Rico’s Television-esque croon and unfettered pop structures. Sure to make your eyes wet and your heart sing, your fist pump and hips shake, Endless Love condenses the last 50 years of pop and punk music into a delicious, low-calorie, nostalgia-laden package.”
