Milton Keynes born Dan Stock unveils his first track for Heavenly Recordings. “Baby Valentino” already feels like a classic debut from a young man barely out of his teens. The track has this laid back swagger about it, as Stock trades in emotive, guitar led indie rock, with punchy verses and singalong chorus’.
Talking about the track, Stock says, “Baby Valentino is a love story set in a city centre at night. It’s a result of countless nights out in Milton Keynes, looked at through my romantic imagination. I love writing lyrics that are about mundane, everyday situations but have a bit of magic thrown in”.
The track is accompanied by an appropriately stark, stripped back and beautifully shot video, directed by acclaimed BAFTA winning director Kieran Evans. Having only played a handful of local dates so far, Stock has announced a run of ‘festival’ dates in May.
