C Duncan - Garden

Christopher Duncan's multitracked acoustic lushness continues to evolve and take on a full spectrum of pastel colours on this new single, which explodes into psychedelic life like few properly manage to pull off, replete with a guitar solo journeying into space at the end, while the harmonic Duncans underneath remain able to convey the emotions in simple fashion. Intricate without overcomplicating matters, it's brighter than most of what we've heard from him so far while conveying an undertow of doubt, a sunshine pop Mark Hollis in waiting. Recorded in his bedroom, it'll be fascinating to see how this works live supporting Admiral Fallow in June and then Belle & Sebastian at Somerset House come July, the month (17th) in which album Architect is released.
