SIMIAN GHOST UNVEIL ‘A MILLION SHINING COLOURS’: “ABOUT THAT FEELING…THAT IT’S A BIT HOPELESS WHAT YOU’RE DOING”
Sweden’s Simian Ghost – Sebastian Arnström, Erik Klinga ,Mathias Zachrisson – return with ‘A Million Shining Colours’, a wonderful modern indie anthem, their first material since last year’s stunning ‘Autumn Slowmo’ EP.
Their vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Sebastian explains: “We wrote ‘A Million Shining Colours’ based on an idea which runs through much of the material on the new record; that we would try to develop our songwriting, partly by looking back in music history.
The lyrics, to me, are about that feeling I think many people working with music or art in any form gets sometimes, that it’s a bit hopeless what you’re doing.
It’s about coming to terms with that, to able to look at yourself and what you burn for in life, in all it’s hopelessness, and smile.”
