Dan Sultan's killer instinct
This month, Dan Sultan will release his fourth album Killer, which signifies a break from the trad rock’n’roll of his past. Working with long-time collaborator and close friend Jan Skubiszewski (from Way of the Eagle studios) Sultan says his freedom to go in a new direction is partly down to being an artist who's not limited to one genre, and this new record is his favourite work yet. “I’ve changed things up stylistically and instrumentally,” says Sultan, who is billed for Splendour in the Grass in July. “I like to keep myself interested and on my toes.” In Killer, Sultan introduces synthesisers, drum machines and gospel backing vocals. Thumping opening track ‘Drover’ has been described as a prequel to Paul Kelly’s ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’. In ‘Hold It Together’ there’s a booming gospel chorus, and ‘Fire Under Foot’ is emotionally charged and vulnerable. It’s clear we’re being taken on a different journey, though not too far away from Sultan’s personal and reflective lyricism. “Jan has done a lot of stuff with that kind of sound and that sort of instrumentation, so he could articulate what I was trying to hear, he could get that out. I’ll describe something as ‘fluffy’ and then he’ll go ‘Oh a sound like this…?’ “We are very close,” says Sultan of his relationship with Skubiszewski. “There’s a brotherhood there. We read each other’s minds in the studio. There are times when I tested his patience, absolutely, which we won’t go into,” he says, laughing. Sultan
