Best known for his work in The Guts and as a contributor to releases by Palmer and Tommy And The Rockets and many others, here’s Dave Strong’s first solo single. And let me add DIY to solo: Strong basically did everything himself on this single, with his daughter Kyra on backing vocals. Both songs are very catchy and have a strong Leftovers/Kurt Baker vibe. Little Girl is a pop punk hit from the get-go, whereas flipside I Would is more restrained and classic powerpop oriented. It’s a strong first outing which make me curious about the next songs Strong will put out – He already has plans to follow up the single with an EP.
Remember how Geoff Palmer a couple of years ago was putting out a new song every couple of weeks just for fun? And how these songs ultimately culminated into his great solo debut Pulling Out All The Stops? I am kinda hoping his buddy Dave Strong will have a similar trajectory.
