Aforger is Douglas Dare’s follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut Whelm. The sparse chords and moody synths of his debut remain, but Dare has expanded his sound to include a brass ensemble and a choir. Lyrically, the singer/songwriter and pianist has opted for a more personal approach this time around, as evidenced on “Oh Father,” which tackles his coming out to his dad. ~ Bekki Bemrose

Following his acclaimed debut, Whelm, London-based singer-songwriter and pianist Douglas Dare returns with his sophomore album, Aforger on October 14th. In a digital age where memories are mimicked by pixels and identity is as malleable as static, Douglas Dare’s new album Aforger questions the boundaries between reality and fiction. Inspired by recent events and revelations encountered in his life, these songs depict Dare at his most vulnerable, whilst simultaneously reflecting our own obsession with reality and technology back at us. Douglas Dare states, ‘The album title plays with the idea of a forger – someone creating imitations or copies, and reimagines them as the creator of something that’s no longer real. Prior to writing the record, I came out to my father and came out of a long relationship, both were hugely challenging for me and questioned my idea of identity and reality. These thoughts leaked out into the record and formed the core of Aforger. I was determined not to write a break-up album or repeat what I’d done before.’

Inspired by recent events and revelations encountered in his life these songs depict Dare at his most vulnerable, whilst simultaneously reflecting our own obsession with reality and technology back at us. Aforger was produced by long-time collaborator Fabian Prynn, mixed by Paul Gregory of Lanterns On The Lake and mastered at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.
