Danger Ahead — The Updownsuite review

“Come along and walk among us / The polyglots, the derelict / The ones whose shoes never seem to fit…”

Underground poet/down tempo electro-goddess Vanessa Daou unleashes "Danger Ahead" as the official first single from her highly anticipated upcoming album Light Sweet Crude: Act One - Hybrid.  Trading the gin and jazz soaked sounds of her speakeasy themed project – 2008's Joe Sent Me, "Danger" finds Daou flirting with early 90’s house a la Danny Tenaglia.  Heavily layered and club ready, "Danger" is brimming with Daou's signature breathy and sultry vocals.  Dealing with those who exist on the outskirts of society's norms, "Danger" is a welcome addition to Daou's already diverse character studies and by incorporating tribal beats and strings, it also recalls the sonic richness of Daou's earlier work.
