Listen to the new track from Our Krypton Son below.
Three years after the release of his acclaimed second album Fleas & Diamonds, Our Krypton Son, aka Derry singer-songwriter Chris McConaghy, has announced its highly anticipated follow up, Modern Ruins – out on July 7. Ahead of the release, he has shared the stunning lead single from the project, 'White Sun'.
"'White Sun' is a poem of nothing," McConaghy says. "Shafts of light on a reservoir. Shafts of sun reddening the gills, burning behind the earlobes, years ago when you were a child. Memories of chips wrapped in obituaries, slices of watermelon dropped in the sand like sopping downturned grins suggest a limited future but then the white sun rises in the morning and anything is possible."
The release cements Our Krypton Son's status as one of Ireland's most compelling singer-songwriters.
