Description:

Chris McConaghy aka Our Krypton Son hails from Derry, Northern Ireland where he first cut his first musical teeth with psychobilly art-rockers Red Organ Serpent Sound. Having graduated unscathed from those rambunctious ranks, Chris established his songwriting credentials as an acoustic solo act sharing stages with David Kitt, Gemma Hayes, Jape and Cashier No. 9 around the Irish club circuit. Gathering plaudits as a writer of note, Chris gathered close musician friends together in early 2010 to create Our Krypton son and record a debut album of the same name, from which this lead single is taken.

Additional Information:

Recorded in a large industrial warehouse (an asphalt roofing factory to be precise) and produced by Sam Williams (Supergrass, Plan B, The Noisettes, Tricky, Kula Shaker and The Go Team), Our Krypton Son's mus traverses the songscapes of Wilco, Costello, Bowie, Waits and Orbison. McConaghy's voice is at times fragile and glacial and on occasion shimmers romantically in rare, Irish sunlight. "There isn't a central concept lyrically on the album," states Chris "memory, time, love, death, work, jealousy - the usual shit really.

Press:

"An artist with a vision of creating more than just a formulaic pop song. A breathtaking nugget just waiting to be discovered" - [Charlotte Dryden - The Fly]

"Dreamy, colourful, otherworldly...Clark Kent better watch his back, there's a new contender for the title of Krypton's most famous son" - AU Magazine

"Our Krypton Son, a prodigious talent, merging superb musicianship with a great pop sensibility. Think Ben Folds meets Ray Davies and you're definitely in for a treat." - [Joe Lindsay - BBC Radio Ulster]

"Our Krypton Son is one of the best songwriters I've ever heard. The songs blaze with originality - lyrically, they capture a truth that you've always known by making it feel like you're hearing for the first time. The blend of muted trumpet, sweeping piano and delicate acoustic guitar evokes other places and even films awhile, at the same time, anchored by a voice that is uniquely unaffected and understated and all the more striking as a result. Our Krypton Son is a serious contender. This is the real thing." - [Stephen McCauley - BBC Radio Ulster - Electric Mainline]
