TOO LATE TO DANCE is just one of those songs that draw an automatic smile, with Bob Dylan/Leonard Cohen type charm Dean Scott Crimmins is exactly what we’re so sorely lacking in the contemporary Pop arena. His sound is euphorically timeless, not riddled with complexity, just a sweet and humble quintessence that holds a reminiscence to so many Pop & Alt Rock icons it’s pretty uncanny.
The New York based Singer Songwriter Dean Scott Crimmins holds the track pretty well on his own with his almost Nick Cave-esque lyrics and vocal style, yet for TOO LATE TO DANCE he drafted in female angelic vocal talent to really make this track into a harmonious, rhythm soaked wonder. Even at 5:51 minutes long, I was still left with a craving for more of the Pop lotharios pioneeringly nostalgic sound. Luckily for me, he has a hefty back catalogue to sink my teeth into.
