Kristian North (Mothland-signed ffo: Confidence Man, Metronomy) | Shares new single & announces album
This first single, “Fantasy”, finds Kristian drawing inspiration from the likes of Sparks, George Michael, and Roxy Music – lilting vocals ebb and flow around crystalline pop and propulsive, disco-driven beats. Kristian has quite a cool grasp of lyrics presenting quaint confessions, cloaked desires, and mythical references which he knots together to provide something that is in equal bouts as heartfelt and sincere as it is sarcastic – tongue-firmly-in-cheek romantic observations laced around tar-thick grooves. Other touchpoints for the new record and the overall aesthetic include the aforementioned 80s hitmakers, Marvin Gaye’s later releases and British new wave acts like Prefab Sprout and Scritti Politti.
