Review OKS 'Plutonium'

'A sensitive piano ballad full of a smoothed-out Tom Waits song'


For his latest single, Chris McConaghy (aka Our Krypton Son) delivers a sensitive piano ballad full of yearning with 'Plutonium'. His smooth, hushed vocals render the track not by any means unpleasant.

Second track 'Nowhere' has a rough guitar and a Beatles-esque melody. McConaghy combines epic piano trails with a rumbling guitar and lyrics. The final track 'As I Fade Away' returns to the piano for another ballad tale, like a smoothed-out Tom Waits song.

The second single to be taken from Our Krypton Son’s debut self titled album, 'Plutonium' is available on Smalltown America as a limited edition, coloured vinyl 7″ and digital download.
