Blending elements of psych, indie, pop, and rock, Perth-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Krumple Krink has unveiled his final release for the year, aptly titled ‘Connected To Disconnection’.
Astutely recognising the escapism sought by all humans, in many different forms, it’s set not to critique or offer comment, but merely to recognize that we all participate in games of escapism, to journey away from the mundaneness of our day-to-day lives. This point of connection sees Krumple Krink use layered sonics, uneasy sounds and vibrant, electrical instrumentation to build a world for audiences to find their own moment of escape.
Recorded at his home studio in Perth, and produced entirely by himself, Krumple Krink worked to layer multiple tracks of instrumentation to find just the right textures and timbre for the track. After finalising production, he then teamed up with the esteemed Rob Grant of Poons Head Studios (Tame Impala, POND) who handled the mixing and mastering for ‘Connected To Disconnection’. The result, a thick and layered sonic world, that still cuts through with sharpness and brightness throughout.
Speaking about the release, Krumple Krink explained, “The song is about escapism. It’s not looking to say anything about escapism, just pointing out its existence in every single person’s life. For each person, that escapism takes a different form. Sometimes that form is positive to our lives, sometimes it’s not. But we all participate in games of escapism from the mundaneness of our everyday lives. 'Connected To Disconnection; is meant to sound electric - like it has little shots of energy travelling in it.”
He continued, “'Connected To Disconnection' rides the line between chaos and calmness, blending extremity with serenity to give a feeling of intense bliss. This song has a lot of layered sounds, which work together to create a unique, excited yet easy-flowing texture. I recorded it at my home studio over a few days, looking for a blend of animated sounds that fight for your attention.”
