Dan Potter Sings is an alternative-rock artist from Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2013, the musician released his debut album “Self/Tilted.” In 2014, Dan Potter Sings released his second album “Barbarian.” This year on, August 17, comes a third release entitled “With Primordial Hands” via media outlet Bandcamp. Included in the eight-song release are the singles “With Primordial Hands” and “Sweet Enough.”
When listening to the release, I was intrigued by the sound the artist was going for. Although alt-rock, With Primordial Hands is a bit darker than what I am used to hearing. Furthermore, I was impressed that Dan Potter Sings takes on song-writing, performing, mixing, and mastering the release by himself.
I really enjoyed listening to With Primordial Hands. In particular, the alt-rock basis, yet still creating a different and memorable sound. Overall, the tracks standing out the most for me on With Primordial Hands were “For a Girl,” “Thought Sailor,” and “Sweet Enough.”
If you enjoy alternative rock, but are looking for something that is not typically alt-rock, I would recommend listening to the singles “With Primordial Hands” and “Sweet Enough.” If you like the tracks, pick up the entire album on Bandcamp now.

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
