Dan Farber‘s alter-ego DONNY released a new single, “Growing Pains”, to the world and it is a wonderfully dark, moody song that is heart-wrenching and real. The singer-songwriter based out of Tel Aviv, Israel has put together a track that is styled like a depressed Michael Bublé meets Chet Faker and he calls it ‘sad reggae’. As Farber states, “DONNY tells a story about regrets and forsaken love. Writing the song is my only way to continue my life. It is my therapy.”
His honey-smoked and controlled vocals are generously spread over a melodic, symphonic backdrop with a heavy, almost dubstep, bass line that creates the sensation of being in the middle of a James Bond movie. It is interesting and engaging. Stepping away from a lot of the electro and synth-pop out there, DONNY‘s “Growing Pains” is much rawer and personal. Music like this is a dying art and Farber is successfully resurrecting it.
