KEITH M THOMSON, singer and guitarist with formerly London-based folk-punk darlings THE PENNY BLACK REMEDY has released a new solo album.
Having traversed various many musical by-roads with his multi-national band, Thomson has now hitched his Gretsch twang to instrumental electronica on the 14-track Sublingual.
The follow-up to last year's Give The Void Its Colours, and recorded at his studio in Dubrovnik, Thomson sees the release as a series of 'mini-soundtracks', no doubt inspired by his other passion, film, citing parallels with Blade Runner, Lost Highway and Dredd, as well as 90s-era Bowie and latterday Gary Numan.
"Although it wasn’t written as such, this release feels like a natural sequel to my
previous album," he says. "While perhaps heavier on the beats and synths, I think the songs have quite a varied palette of moods, while still maintaining a strong melodic core."
Sublingual is available now through Bandcamp.
