盛岡発 非定型音楽集団 Otaria's Bloc(k) 涅槃、或いは地獄。
Of & About
All You Have
Edge of Charm
The 3 track double A side features 2 songs from Mick's 7th solo album due for release in May to coincide with a tour across the UK.
The title track is a blend of Hip-Hop rhythms, evangelical choirs, Jazz and catchy vocals, all brought together with a melodic and unpredictable bass line. Although the description may sound complicated, it belies the simplicity of the love song at the heart of 'Of & About'. MK "I see it as a jigsaw puzzle of sounds, each fitting neatly into its own space without disturbing the overall picture."
The alternative A side introduces the voice of new vocalist Bex Collins in a dark, moody setting with the surprising addition of fuzz bass guitars and a Gypsy violin. 'All You Have' was auditioned extensively before Mick decided on Bex as the missing element needed to complete the song. "I gave no indication of what I wanted to hear," explains Mick, "It's a strange track, but I knew the right singer would understand it without any guidance."
The third piece, 'Edge Of Charm' is an up-beat instrumental exclusively recorded for the single.
