“Silence Overgrown” is an example of just what Kane Strang does best. If you’re expecting something outrageous, infectious hooks or poppy melodies, you’re listening in the wrong place. If you’re hoping for some good old, even-keeled, simply solid drowsy pop, Kane Strang is the band for you. His clever cut and dry lyrics go hand in hand with the simple melodies. The video for “Silence Overgrown” is a collection of shots from Kane Strang’s previous tour. Kane commented on this experience:
“Landing in New York ahead of our first overseas shows and walking around that night was hands down the most surreal moment of my life. I never even thought I’d visit America, let alone be there for my music and I’m so glad we managed to capture fragments of that and the rest of this crazy year on camera. This goes out to everyone who has come see us play or let us crash at their houses or bought the album. Thank you!!!”
String Cheese, Kane Strang’s previous release, was one of my favorite records of 2016. It was stark and kind of bizarre listening for me at first but once I settled into the austerity of it, I loved it. Kane Strang’s new record, Two Hearts And No Brain, is out now on Dead Oceans.
