EP 2: Venture Capitalists
The second EP from klee shade - remastered, and sounding it's best ever.
The most pop-oriented of the three ( ...but everything has a dark side, (especially disneyland) hence, the artwork) - it opens with the first ks radio single ever, 'Beg For Rain', throwing back around three years (before even the debut EP), is succeeded by the only instrumental track in the initial 3 EP's, named 'Death', ...which, of course, should be followed up by a song called 'The Cure'... a seaside single i love dearly, alongside the oceanic track 5 'Looking'.
Amidst these is the entirely improvised, inebriated, out-of-thin-air track 4, 'Eyesy', recorded (in one take, possibly obviously - amongst Ballina skatepark) completely by phone, never presumed to see the light of day, with the only featuring artist across all three EPs on them prison bars. My dude Isaac completely just freestyled his way onto my EP and I couldn't be happier about it.
Leaving two songs of the tracklist of seven remaining - number 6 is the aeronautical synth pop dance choon 'Constellocean', born of my first synthesiser - and the closing track 'Lately'... well... this is kind of a big one. It was recorded almost completely in a echoey, quiet pub in Lismore, approaches themes of mental illness, substance abuse and mortality, and it simply wouldn't exist hadn't my dear friend Callum Willows of Hour Of The Hound and Auraflex told me to 'keep playing that riff'. I didn't think much of it at the time but in the deadest of gigs, that small act of encouragement birthed one of my favourite songs on 'Venture Capitalists'.
I've mentioned a few boys... but really, this release is much more about girls. Shoutout to *names redacted* for existing - and really, any girl, or anyone for that matter that made me, or really any other human feel stuff, and junk. And things. Music made me feel and that's why I did this. And here we are.
