Select Captain release new album Strings & Feathers October 14th
Kristian Gaarskjær’s musical alter ego Select Captain is ready with sophomore album Strings & Feathers two years after the release of the debut The Fear and The Lights. The space in between the two has been spent touring Denmark, solo and with his full band, and the release of the EP Pure Neon (which included the radiosingle Morning).
The new album shows completely new sides of Select Captain as the band has been involved much more in the process of writing and recording. The result is an album that expands the Select Captain sound, by incorporating inspirations from the 90’s indierock scene, even though the music is still anchored in the classic American songwriting tradition.
The songs on the album deal with the aspects of human feelings in a divided world. Loneliness, arrogance, greed, joy, despair and optimism go hand in hand, and give the listener an outlook on a world of change and disorder.
The album was recorded at Homeless Studios in Copenhagen and is produced and mixed by Søren Vestergaard (Rumhund, Pernille Rosendahl).
September 23rd will see the release of the new single 40 NIGHTS feat. Danish singer Mathilde Falch.
STRINGS & FEATHERS will be released through MINI ME RECORDS, October 14th, and Select Captain will play a releaseconcert at BETA in Copenhagen October 12th.
