Danny McDonald has been carving out his own unique brand of jangling Australian guitar pop since the mid-nineties.

His latest single, Cordyline’ sticks to the formula - layers of lyrical nostalgia matched with those unmistakable chiming guitars and punchy bass and drums - all jammed into 70 seconds worth of harmony-laden hooks you’ll swear you’ve heard before.

It’s the first single from his new ‘Modern architecture’ EP, to be released on vinyl, CD and digital through Melbourne’s Popboomerang Records in February 2020, produced by the Killjoys’ Craig Pilkington at Audrey Studios in Coburg.
