"There comes a certain risk with publishing 150 gushing words on an artist who's only recorded one song at the time of writing. In the few weeks that this magazine takes to come back from the printers Dan Croll could have flipped from 6Music and Nick Grimshaw-adored cool cat of the minute to bigger flop than Viva Brother. But then, most songs aren't as head-spinningly catchy and nigh on perfect as 'From Nowhere', so we're willing to take the chance with this one.
Blending (very) subtle 70s rock influences with a psychedelic electro-pop beat, the Liverpudlian artist's debut solo release is a grooving, bouncing, and undeniably massive pop hit that demands your attention and refuses to let go. There is a risk of laying such superlatives on one lone recording, but you get the sense that Dan Croll has plenty more to give." DIY, UK
