We know, we know – it’s spring outside, shinny happy faces on the streets, warm weather and sun on the blue sky. Yes. But even in such bright times a melancholy can speak up for a brief moment. Then this Select Captain song should be playing in your speakers/headphones.
Select Captain is a solo project of singer/guitarist Kristian Gaarskjær who also plays in the Danish rock band Gonzo Morales. With his gloomy alter ego, he provides you with a dose of what Denmark (and Scandinavia) is famous for – dark, melancholic sound.
“All Too Hard” deep guitar riff and a slow-motion movie atmosphere will make you stop for a moment and see the gray in all that spring that’s waking up around you. A good reminder of the fact that without a little bit of darkness, doubts and sadness we wouldn’t know what the light, energy and happiness are.
