Sad Funeral, the solo project of ex-Cave Painting frontman Adam Kane, has recently returned with the stunning new single Kazbeg. Mountain solitude gave Kane some new inspiration and perspective, and upon returning to Brighton the songwriter began creating new music of a meditative, dreamy nature. Give it a listen…
Commenting on the new release, Kane said “I wrote the track when I returned from Georgia with my partner, where I’d been visiting the village of Kazbegi. It’s somewhere we’d often talked about going due to the remote and mountainous location.”
“Kazbeg feels like a very positive and natural progression from what was a tentative start at writing by myself following my earlier years with Cave Painting.” A huge step for Kane under his new moniker Sad Funeral, Kazbeg is our favourite release yet, marking a new direction. The layered, atmospheric soundscape and mounting harmonies are here matched with wise lyricism to create a soul-searching, reflective song. “The song isn’t necessarily about a break up but more about a relationship that is lacking in areas being put under the microscope,” Kane suggests. “I’ve also been writing a lot from different perspectives, one of those being my partners’ and I’ve used the writing process to examine some of my own shortcomings.”
Written by Adam Kane and produced by Rob Flynn (Oslo Parks), Kazbeg features playing by both across its many featured instruments, with additional percussion by Chris Boot (Lucy Rose). We can’t wait to hear more!
