Conor Lynch Announces New Album “Fake” Due 26th February via Devil Town Tapes + Shares Video For New Single “King Of It”
Michigan based musician Conor Lynch is set to release their long-awaited upcoming full-length record “Fake” next week, February 26th.
“Fake” will be available on a limited edition cassette tape run via Bandcamp (UK/US) and digitally via Devil Town Tapes. The lead single from the album, King of It, is out now and was accompanied by a new video compiled and edited by Doug Dulgarian (of They Are Gutting a Body of Water).
“King Of It” commences with this thick brooding guitar tone that emits into this already expansive ambiance that covers such ground yet flawlessly feels snug. Conor conveys this gentle intimacy within this creation which can connect to all. As the notes repeat, this lulling atmosphere draws you in before the brutally honest lyrics join the exploration. Despite the raw words, Conor Lynch has this distinct cherishable charisma that emits soulfully from their vocal harmony. The poignant and relatable touch to Conor’s ongoing theme will effortlessly grip you.
With “King Of It”, Conor creates this developing illusion presented in a melodic momentum. The arrangement boasts such intricate elements and somewhat minimalist instrumentation at times, but the build-up of layers adds to the whirling landscape which intensifies for the heightened crescendo that engulfs the audience with this crucial amped-up fuzz and ferocity.
Conor seemingly captures this ubiquitous current of sadness, that emotive sentiment is showcased within the lyrics. A vision that is constructed through sincerity connects to so many with the relatable aspect, the fact that the lyrics are delivered with an emotional touch is something else. Conor Lynch has the ability to strike a chord on any emotion, this genuine perception sets this musician apart.
If Lynch can capture all of the above in just shy of 3 minutes, imagine the captivating compositions that will follow on the must-hear highly anticipated album release.
Fake is described as marking something of a departure and widening of scope for Lynch, with the folk-rock leanings of his 2019 sophomore People Don’t Think It Be Like It Is but it Do and Don’t newly accompany by heavier tones and unexpected instrumental flourishes.
