After recording and releasing the eponymous Soft Walls album in 2012, Reeves set to work again, this time with a borrowed 8-track and a vision of composing a suite of thematically- interlaced tunes, resulting in his Trouble In Mind debut, No Time.

“‘No Time’ is a fine and strange album.” – 8/10 NME

“Adventurous and bold yet distinctive in execution, No Time represents Dan Reeves’ most essential body of work to date.” – 9/10 Drowned In Sound

“A highly intriguing animal.” – The Line Of Best Fit

No Time’s ten songs are meditations on the passing of time itself and the pre-concieved notions (both external and internal) of what you can and should be doing with it. No Time’s lyrics touch on a universal fear held by many young people heading north of their Twenties; what am I doing, and will I have enough time to do it? While his debut was constructed ‘as-it-happened’ and recorded directly into his computer, No Time’s deliberate songcraft proves just how far he’s come as a tunesmith, seamlessly aligning his pop smarts with avant-leaning psychedelic drones and a propulsive, rhythmic drive. Dreamy guitar ragas like the opening track Won’t Remember My Name’ ebb and flow seamlessly into motorik head- boppers like Never Come Back Again and All The Same, whilst pop tunes Guided Through and No Time shimmer enticingly through a foggy haze.

Mixed to perfection with likeminded independents and Hookworms mastermind, MJ in Leeds and mastered by Joe Caithness at Subsequent Mastering, these are songs to get lost in; to discover & re-discover. Don’t worry – there’s plenty of time.
