SUPPORT FOR ‘EN FANTASY’
“Flailing synths matched to fuzzed out songwriting, the alt auteur’s work manages to be both crisp, lucid and completely lysergic”.
– Clash Magazine (UK)
“That chorus swirls deeper and deeper into my head with each listen, another colourful planet to add to carl’s galaxy.” – 4/5 stars
– Declan Byrne – triple j (AUS)
Winner of triple j Unearthed’s Party in the Paddock competition
Hobart-based artist Carl Renshaw has just unveiled his arresting new single ‘En Fantasy’ – produced and mixed by the musician himself, with additional production by Tasker (Tia Gostelow, Kinder, Pleasure Coma).
‘En Fantasy’ takes cues from the likes of staple influences Todd Rundgren, Toro y Moi and Jim Croce. Opening with hypnotic keys and Renshaw’s distinctive and endearing vocals, the track evolves into an enigmatic psych-pop symphony, awash with reverb-soaked guitars, fuzz-laden bass, steadfast drums and walls of spaced-out synths.
Renshaw describes the motivation behind ‘En Fantasy’:
“This song is about ignoring people who doubt you and blocking out all their negativity from your life”.
Previous singles have been strongly supported by triple j, triple j Unearthed, Savage Thrills, Life Without Andy and Pilerats. In the live arena, Renshaw has toured the country multiple times and along the way shared stages with Wolfmother, Tash Sultana, Northeast Party House, Maddy Jane, Lime Cordiale and Alex Lahey.
In the coming weeks Carl Renshaw will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘En Fantasy’.
