Denzil A.K.A - Bleak Times Gone

May I be so bold as to share my other half's latest song with you. Smout, who hails from Larne, Northern Ireland writes and performs most of the work himself, with occasional guest appearances. Let the sound of Denzil A.K.A fill your ears like a warm rhubarb tart and leave your feet at a nice temperature. Just right.
