New York based, Australian-bred singular musician Fascinator is excited to share a new song, “Skin Within“, taken from his second studio album Water Sign out Friday, June 15 via Spinning Top (Tame Impala, GUM, POND) /Caroline. “Skin Within” is a celebration of life from the darkest place, that blends a spaghetti western riff with a lick of krautrock and madchester vibes. Pre-order the album here.
The song follows the release of the album’s first single, “Sex Crystals“, a Mancunian space jam about a desert adventure in an invisible car. The single was paired with Fascinator’s signature outlandish visuals, presenting a world of savoury landscapes, where dinosaurs disco and paradigms flourish.
Water Sign journeys multiple sonic terrain. The atmospheric, extended trip offers a sublime dose of revolutionary listening. A lonely planet guide to Fascinator, the experimental aesthetic was conceived over a four-year period, recorded everywhere from planes and trains, a barn in Nantucket, several Brooklyn apartments and an Australian kitchen.
Fascinator has opened for Tame Impala at two sold-out shows at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetery, toured on St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, supported The Avalanches in Amsterdam, joined the likes of Santigold and Kali Uchis at Full Moon Festival in NYC and delivered vivacious sets everywhere from a private festival in The Dominican Republic to playing atop an art car at Burning Man. Following the release of Water Sign, Fascinator will tour North America as special guest for POND. Find dates below. Mackay previously fronted the indie rock band Children Collide.
