The new singles New Year and In Sickness are almost complete, and their official release date is 20th November. The songs will be available to stream here at www.redstencil.com and on soundcloud in the next few weeks. The songs are taken one each from my two eps that are due to be released in Summer 2016.
The first song is 'New Year' which is an electric guitar driven alt-pop song taken from the forthcoming 'Protagonist' ep. I started writing this song on the 1st of January this year after setiing myself a new year resolution to 'write more happier songs.'
The second is 'In Sickness', a melancholy acoustic song with a sparse arrangement of cornet, cello, piano, acoustic guitar and acoustic bass. It's stark production and delicate vocals are influenced by the early work of two of my favourite musicians Sufjan Stevens and Bright Eyes. It's from the forthcoming acoustic 'What Remains' ep.
I really hope you will enjoy these songs :-) Kar xx
