It’s just how it goes. It’s just being nice. We all are angels when we die. Our foibles overlooked, in the effort to give off the karma that is due.
We’re odd animals. But it’s just what it is.
Said Kellen of Troy: “The composition makes for a grand effort of pop hooks and healing harmonies that reflect the modern brass flair of Andrew Bird and Father John Misty. Kellen of Troy avoids the cliche, with luminescent layers and forthright lyrics, keeping us listeners both appealed and absorbed.”
Beautiful guitar in tongue-in-cheek honesty flourishes within the lyrics as Kellen of Troy looks at just one pin point of how we are and what we’ve always been.
It’s “happy music with a happy message is too praise-and-worshippy. And moody, melancholy music with a sad story is too often boring, unconvincing and self-indulgent. I think songs hit harder if they combine both sides of the coin.”
Quite nice. Quite charming. Quietly on point. Kellen makes a smooth impact with delights of wisdom and tantalizing story telling. Further research is invited with his latest LP ‘Vanity Project’, out now.
