King Creosote (An MJR Group & Open Presentation by arrangement with Coda Agency)
The King Creosote idiom :
equal parts geometry, self-deprecation, cosmic wonder and seafaring poetry remains intact on the forthcoming album, as does his knack for a killer couplet.
But there is a renewed sense of space and letting the music breathe (lead, even) on the album
– all the better to showcase a stunning ensemble cast that includes Catriona McKay (harp), Mairearad Green (bagpipes), Gordon Maclean (double bass), Hannah Fisher (violin, vocals), Sorren Maclean (guitar, vocals) and Pete Harvey (cello), alongside KC's regular rock diviners, and his baby daughter Louie Wren (on ambient reverie, 'Peter Rabbit Tea').
I wanted to push myself songwriting-wise, so I went in with hardly anything and had to wing it, KC reveals.
I wanted to try and flip the clock all the way back to sound like a younger me or a less cynical me. In the past, I've been fixated on twisting and wrenching every line, but here I've let that go a bit, and I hope that lets you concentrate more on the music; on what’s going on around it.
