Duke Special – Last Night I Nearly Died (But I Woke Up Just In Time)

Belfast’s Peter Wilson continues to ride upon the power of his prosaic lyrical prowess, using a rustic stammering piano element and percussion tingles to emphasise his surreal points. Shades of Elton John and Damien Gough gives the vocals rising impact and creates a freewheeling feeling, making it hard not to get caught along in the momentum and wisdom. This re-released single, combines freshness with escapism to the make the Duke’s world an enjoyable and accessible place.
