With just over two weeks from unveiling his second solo album, Summer Of Crush, Danish experimental singer/songwriter Kristian Harting has shared a new single off it called ‘Ship Of Fools’. The entire album was written, played and recorded by Harting himself, using guitars, loop pedals, a foot-operated synth and analogue electronics. Harting describes the album as, “Motown meets metal meets Morricone.” Speaking about the track, he said this:
“’Ship Of Fools’ is about abusing yourself in a system you know is bad for you but still fascinates and attracts you to a degree where you are willing to compromise yourself to be part of it. About knowing the world is on the brink of ecological disaster and you are still traveling around in airplanes, pouring plastic in the waste and eating pesticides. It’s about the driving force of Western capitalism fuelled by money and power, glam and cocaine, seducing and enslaving people and nature. I’m not a saint. I’m caught up in it. It’s everywhere I go. I try to breathe freely but everywhere are exhaust pipes.”
‘Ship Of Fools’ is a beautiful beast of a track. Listen to ir below and watch out for the release of Summer Of Crush on October 30th via Exile on Mainstream.
