7digital What we said: There are quite a few characteristics you associate with stage school graduates, but subtlety and restraint are rarely amongst them. Bridport-born pianist Douglas Dare is an exception. Trained at Liverpool’s Institute of Performing Arts, the 23-year-old now specialises in quietly majestic, classical-contemporary compositions, in a similar vein to his Erased Tapes label mates Nils Frahm and Olafur Árnalds. Pairing melancholic piano melodies and swooning vocals with protean, electronic percussion, Whelm is the rarest of debuts: deeply affecting without ever seeming overwrought.
