Description

Alexander Carson is a neoclassical, downtempo, composer and songwriter based in London UK. Carson spent the better part of 7 years as the lead singer, and songwriter for genre-fluid quintet Wooden Arms. "Forgotten" is the answer to a question nobody asked: What if Harry Nillson's one chord masterpiece "Coconut" was written for gloom-core post-rock kids? The track layers a simple F# pentatonic scale upon itself until it finally bends and allows the chord to change culminating in a 1 take, semi-improvised, collaboration with long suffering Wooden Arms member Alex Mackenzie. Recorded in one hour in a 4th century church with a handful of microphones and even less forethought. "Forgotten" is taken from the forthcoming EP called "Ellipsism" - a word taken from the "Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows" : n. sadness that you'll never be able to know how history will turn out, that you'll dutifully pass on the joke of being alive without ever learning the punchline."Forgotten" will be released digitally on Oct 26th on Round Table Records."Ellipsism" will be released as 12" vinyl in 2019 on Round Table Records.""Lovers" is a perfect blend of modern songwriting and classical musicianship." - Line of Best Fit"Sounding at times like an Irish prayer and others a bit Bowie-ish, but never dull or less challenging." - Where the Music Meets"The fragile vocals and piano playing are unmistakably Alex - a distinctive timbre and delicate working of the keys that always reminds slightly of Anthony and the Johnsons" - Outline Magazine
