CHARLIE LOOKER - Shares Single From Debut Solo Album

Composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Charlie Looker shares "Golden Flesh", the latest single from his debut solo album, Simple Answers, which is out since this Friday via Last Things Records. Charlie Looker describes the dark, orchestral pop song "Golden Flesh" as, "the most poppy song on the record by far, a shimmering halo of dopamine I cooked up".
Featuring a 17-piece chamber orchestra and four years in the making, Simple Answers materialized as a piece of crossover art music as complex and severe as both the city and the times, in which it was created. The wildly hybrid sound of Simple Answers is based on an orchestral core of strings, winds, brass and piano, blended with an electronic palette of 808 drum machines and synths with Looker's tenor voice front and center. The record forms a unique bridge between disparate sonic realms. The drones and dissonance of abstract modern classical composition, dramatic post-punk vocal hooks, lush 19th Century romanticism, Medieval choral beauty, horror film score cacophony, and even some rhythms and textures from trap rap and R&B, all come together in cinematic epics, many of which stretch toward the 10-minute mark.
