Track Of The Day – Kidsmoke ‘Rising Sun’

Kidsmoke’s ‘Rising Sun’ is our Track Of The Day today, a real beauty from the Welsh dream pop quartet.  ‘Rising Sun’ comes as part of the group’s upcoming album which we will have to wait until next year to get our ears around.

Pulsating and psychedelic ‘Rising Sun’ was produced by Bill Ryder-Jones and Russ Hayes, and reveals a raw, driven and far-flung sound with an unwavering energy.  This new single is a shimmering, glorious display of indie-pop, with lyrics of fortitude and resilience combined with dreamy vocals and harmonies, the band throwback to their indie heritage.

“The first two lines I wrote for ‘Rising Sun’ were I don’t want to follow and I feel your love” describes frontman Lance Williams, “I wanted the song to be centred around those lyrics, so I started thinking about how they could be linked somehow. The song ended up being about pushing against what other people expect of you, even if that pressure is coming from the people you are closest to.”
