Scottish multi-instrumentalist songwriter Kar Stanton write honest songs for fragile people. Through unguarded lyrics and delicate Scottish vocals, her aim is to bring you hope and comfort amid the challenges and vulnerabilities of life.
Kar's debut album 'Protagonist' and recent singles 'Freehand' and 'The Wonders and the Terrors' can be found on all digital stores and downloading platforms.
The Wonders and the Terrors
Kar's latest single touches on the themes of rolling news and social media, and asks 'how can we live in a world like this?'. With influences such as The National and St Vincent, the song introduces a more developed production style to Kar's catalogue.
Kar says about the song, "though the song feels very apt for recent times, I can trace it’s lyrical roots back to pages of lyrics I wrote in the days following the 7/7 London bombings. The other song that emerged from that batch of lyrics was The Body Count which you can hear on my album Protagonist."
