After a lengthy break between releases, two-piece band 'ill-Starred Captain' have just dropped their first single from their upcoming album, “Get Lucid on the Transcendental”. The new song is called “Skin Too Few”, and it is a proud and passionate call to arms.
Driven by finger picked acoustic guitar and banjo, the song has a tense and soulful bluegrass feel, but Justin Francis’s explosive drum work and Scott Bassham’s wiry electric guitar underpin lyrics that explore the nature and need for empathy in a strange and careless world.
Additional lead guitar work by the bands long term recording engineer, Dave Lokan, lifts the song, and the entire piece has a building drama and momentum that transcends its initial simplicity.
