DARIAN - Do You Have Any Regrets?

7" Single / Bang6 / 1997

Darian, here is DARIAN SAHANAJA, currently a prime mover on the exciting L.A pop scene with the highly touted WONDERMINTS. Enjoy these 2 awesome renditions of BRIAN WILSON songs recorded in the early days of the band. Released under his first name, Darian Sahanaja and his two friends (Nick Walusko & Tom Bailey) recreates the Beach Boy’s sound of yore so many pretenders fail at. An astronishingly accomplished achievement as it was done on a 4-track. And, of course, these incredible songs are bringing back memories of a time when life was simpler. From the “Beach Boys Love You” album (1977), “I Wanna Pick You Up” is a honey pearl of purity sounding like a left-over from the “Pet Sounds” sessions. With an extra 12-string guitar and more dept to an already rich original, taken from Brian Wilson’s unrleased “Sweet Insanity” album (1990), “Do You Have Any Regrets?” is simply the best ever Brian Wilson cover. Pure magic with “Smash Hit” written all over it!

Grand fan de Brian Wilson (il l’a même accompagné avec son groupe The Wondermints), Darian nous offre là deux covers du maître, avec tact et respect. L’esprit, le sens de l’arrangement, recréés sur un 4 pistes, ça tient du miracle. Darian y est arrivé. C’est beau comme du beach Boys!

Darian (Sahanaja) of Wondermints fame has, using just a 4-track machine, miraculously recreated the aural soundscape of PET SOUNDS on two fairly obscure Brian Wilson songs. “I Wanna Pick You Up” and “Do You Have Any Regrets” are respectful interpretations of the master and I’m sure Mr Wilson would be pround.

Chanteur des merveilleux Américains de Wondermints, Darian Sahanaja a reçu le plus bel honneur qu’un songwriter puisse espérer : les compliments de Brian Wilson. Pop The Balloon, label Lyonnais s’est lancé dans des fouilles préhistoriques pour dénicher son premier single, enregistré sous le nom de Darian sur un 4 pistes très permissif et imaginatif : soit 2 reprises risquées et plantureuses des Beach Boys. Quelle exubirance.
