At a time of unprecedented change and uncertainty, San Francisco-based songwriter and performer Duncan Nielsen of DONCAT brings us a sunny new single titled “The Good Times Roll” to uplift our spirits. While DONCAT has been writing and performing since 2012, he had balanced multiple gigs before focusing on his solo act, including one as guitarist, vocalist, and keyboard player of Geographer.

“The Good Times Roll” is a deviation from the style in his last album release Preservation of the Spirit, which features Nielsen’s sultry vocals, reminiscent of a full-bodied Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes, on the backdrop of electrifying guitar riffs. In comparison to the subdued sounds off that album, DONCAT’s latest release delivers louder, bright messaging that radiates the feeling of a summer road trip down the California coast.

The track comes shortly after the February release of “Be My Weekend” off of his forthcoming EP. DONCAT teases another release later this week in his latest post via Instagram.

“The good times roll when your life’s broken hearted / you can’t kill the party if it hasn’t even’t started”
