Kaktus Einarsson – Ocean’s Heart
Pleased to announce that Kaktus Einarsson has released his
final video from his newly released debut album ‘Kick The Ladder’
Returning with their first new music in 8 years, Stubborn Heart have now released their anticipated new album ‘Made Of Static’.
Luca Santucci and Ben Fitzgerald, who have spent the last few years developing the ten brooding electro-soul tracks that make up the successor to their lauded 2012 self-titled debut, have once again struck a fine balance between ominous synth-soundscapes and introspective songwriting.
Balance is the key theme here. With Fitzgerald leading the production and manning the machines, the sound is rawer than on their previous album. Left-field pop with dark, icy edges, it finds a home somewhere in between r&b and cold wave. Santucci brings the heart and with it his aching, obsessive lyrics and a desire for something grittier in its presentation. The duo’s talents complement each other perfectly throughout.
‘Yout’ by God Damn is now available, this is the first single of their upcoming album ‘Raw Coward’ that will be out 10 September ?
They tell us “The opening line “When he was just a baby, his mother told him son, be a good English boy and sell the world their guns” is a good foreshadow to a repeated theme on the record; that false pride that’s groomed into us from a young Health Canada Pharmacy age. Blinkered to the real atrocities and corruption that have both made our country and continues to do so, that sense of higher moral rank, that sense of superiority and privilege that many still unfortunately feel they’re entitled to. If we’re going to evolve, we need to see what we’ve done and are doing wrong. The death of false pride, finding your true identity and personal growth.”
We are pleased to announce that ‘Kick The Ladder’ the anticipated debut album from Icelandic composer and songwriter Kaktus Einarsson, frontman of post-punk outfit Fufanu, is finally here ?
It draws heavily on the concept of how we as a society relate to our surroundings, whether it’s environmental or personal. For example, ‘Hypnotized’ is inspired largely by the recent deportation of immigrants and their children from Iceland, some of whom have lived there all their lives. He asks “Are the children buy valium spain scared? Do they belong with us here?” Angered, schools marched against the bill which in turn had Kaktus ruminate on the wondrous innocence of youth, and how older generations often find their ethics clouded, forgetting the simple difference between right and wrong. “They do not bow their heads to the plan, nor adjust to the broken scam”.
