Following his fab gig at Dingwalls back in December, Keuning, founding member and guitarist from The Killers has released the video for his new single ‘Boat Accident’, taken from Keuning’s debut album Prismism (released January 25th on Thirty Tigers). ‘Boat Accident’ has now been added to Radio 2’s C List.
‘Boat Accident’ is a combination of infectious guitars and ethereal synths creating a contagious sound which resonates with the listener long after the song has come to a close. The track follows his debut solo song, ‘Restless Legs’, and title track, ‘Prismism’.
Prismism is the result, a collection of 14 tracks – with all the instruments, save some drum parts, played by Keuning himself – which, like the title says, sees things from all sides, focusing on details without missing the big picture. The album examines our basic relationships and interactions, with family, friends and co-workers, how one can feel trapped by their surroundings, as well as those that rely on them, emotionally and/or professionally. The album is inspired by the very thing that brought him here in the first place – the music.
“The lyrics speak for themselves,” Keuning says “The beauty of the words is they’re open-ended enough that you can relate them to your own situation”, the titles also have their own life and explanation as Keuning will be known for in the future.
