“‘123 Fakestreet’ is my debut single, which will be the first song on my debut album ‘Postcards from Purgatory’ (releasing July 10th),” said Kyle Woods. “The song addresses a lot of the narcissism and success-obsessed behaviour I see in people today. I critique others as much as I do myself in this song. The first verse states the problems and the chorus puts the system they exist in into question.”
Kyle Woods is an independent musician based in Dublin, Ireland. From indie rock to bedroom pop, the album ‘Postcards from Purgatory’ features slow, dreamy songs such as Spring Into Summer and more upbeat indie jams like the single off the album, ‘123 Fakestreet’.
Inspirations include prolific DIY artists such as The Growlers, Gus Dapperton and Her’s but the album also features elements of 60s rock and 80s dream pop. What the album lacks in studio polish, it makes up for in naïve charm.
“Musically, I was going for something with energy and ‘bounce’, while including some percussive/rhythmic elements (all made with guitars),” added Kyle. “The waves of sound and the guitar solos after the second chorus are supposed to reflect 60s rock, a time when the counter culture movement put wealth and traditional life paths into question, much like the intention of the song.”
