Darwin pop-punksters Danger Den have released their new single ‘Too Much To Ask‘, which will be featured on their debut album ‘Pull Yourself Together‘ due for release later this year.

A follow-up to their recently released ‘Drag Me Down‘, the frenetic new track is actually one of the oldest ones ever written by frontman and founder Jeremy Uyloan. Says Jeremy: ” ‘Too Much To Ask’ is one of the oldest songs I’ve ever written, I wrote it when I was 17. What inspired me to write that song was basically about a time when I held an umbrella up for someone on a rainy day.”

The track speaks to an honest, plaintive and youthful longing, set to a very sharp guitar hook that carries the angsty emotion along for the duration. ‘Too Much To Ask‘ sounds like it was written and recorded by much more established musicians – Danger Den have put the work into this single and it augurs well for the upcoming album. They are proving themselves to be professional, quietly ambitious, self-reliant and no doubt have a clear plan and vision for an exciting future.

Jeremy was motivated to start Danger Den because of a lack of punk bands in the NT. After three years honing their craft, Danger Den have carved out a spot for a particular type of alternative sound that is underscored by quality and wide appeal, making their live shows a drawcard for a diverse audience. Theirs is the sort of stuff that gets people off their seat and onto their feet, whoever they are and whatever they are into.

Too Much To Ask‘ is out now on the usual platforms – links below:
