Following last years release of Mosquito with her band the YeahYeahYeah’s, front woman Karen O suggested that she might soon be coming out with some solo material. The first video – entitled Rapt – dropped today with dark simple visual to accompany the track’s sparse production.
Karen is on record (according to Hypetrak anyway) as saying that this batch of songs was written about 7 years ago.
They are the soundtrack to what was an ever continuing love crusade. I hope they keep you company on yours.
Watch it here:
While I was at first dismissive of the sound, I did find the track stuck with me afterword. The direction of this project kind of reminds me of Beck Sea Changes if it was more stripped down and lo-fi [so not really the same]. We’ll have to wait and see how the rest of Crush Songs somes out when it is released on September 9.
