Following the release of his new record Astronaut Meets Appleman, King Creosote performs at Town Hall.
The new album explores the tension and harmony between tradition and technology – between analogue and digital philosophies – and also invokes a feeling that King Creosote (otherwise known as Fife’s Kenny Anderson) says, of “being caught between heaven and earth”.
“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.”
Support comes from Modern Studies, a chamber pop band who play quietly experimental landscape songs.
