Where The Ships Go To Die
Out: 27th August
It's with great pleasure that Alternative Fruit features Aberdeen's award winning alt-folk rock musician, Colin Clyne. Produced by the great Alan Sanderson who's worked with The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Ryan Adams, and Fiona Apple, the song reminisces on times gone by where Colin worked on old boats. The music is written from a frame of mind where vessels of long journeys and heavy responsibility lay their bow for the last time. Where once was a proud piece of maritime engineering, now sits a decrepit hulk that's oozing with fluids and rust. There's a lot of symbology in ships, they can mean so many things.
The music begins with a powerful strumming guitar. Electric wails decorate the sidings as the mountain of well-used steel looms into view. Cellos or violins, maybe both, and twangs of electric power-chord bring out a fascinating feel from the basis of acoustic guitar. The lyrics build in verses that fill with energy as the composition builds up into new choral skies. Keyboards fill backing harmonies as melodic twiddles on each instrument dance and commute from base to base.
This song has had so much love already, with a huge build-up and press following, it's no surprise there's another treat in store. Colin Clyne has commissioned a limited edition beer from Reid's Gold. This Stonehaven brewery has created a fruity and delicious solution to thirst that no doubt tastes good with folk music. Look for Lost To The Sea in stores around Scotland.
