FatCat Records announces C Duncan

FatCat Records won’t be releasing C Duncan’s debut album until next summer, but they’ve provided an early sneak peek at what the singer/songwriter has to offer. The debut single “For” can be streamed below, and it’s a softer, laid back number that falls somewhere between folk and dream pop. The melodies get under your skin rather quickly and Duncan’s smooth voice hovers over the instrumental work with an airier quality. I’m definitely interested in hearing more, and while a title for the album has yet to be revealed, expect more details in the near future.

FatCat Records announces the first peak at new artist C Duncan. C Duncan’s debut single, ‘For’, is taken from his forthcoming LP on FatCat Records(due to drop in summer 2015). A neat window into Christopher’s songwriting, ‘For’ captures the aesthetic, the scope and the wonder that characterises his music.

The pieces that make up his forthcoming debut LP are formed from lush choral harmonies and acoustic instrumentation, textured like contemporary dreampop and all recorded at home in Glasgow on his bedroom studio setup, gradually built up one layer and one instrument at a time. The results of this methodical and isolationist recording process give us charming lo-fi folk with the harmonic width of choral composition, the sweetness of barbershop and the rough eloquence that has so readily soundtracked Glasgow over the past decades.
