Keuning, founding member and guitarist of The Killers had a fantastic gig at Dingwalls, Camden, back in December last year, and in anticipation of his debut solo album, ‘Prismism’, set for release January 25, he has just dropped the video for his new single, ‘Boat Accident’.
‘Boat Accident’ combines infectious guitars and ethereal synths, to create a contagious sound, which will resonate with the listener and call to mind the music of ELO, YES, and Fleetwood Mac. The video is a very cute – if we can use that word – clip which blends both animation and and a live action Keuning in an underwater paradise which is equal parts Spongebob Squarepants and Finding Nemo.
‘Boat Accident’ follows on from Keuning’s debut solo song, ‘Restless Legs’, and the title track, ‘Prismism’. ‘Boat Accident’ has been met with critical acclaim and has already found its way to BBC Radio 2s C Playlist.
‘Prismism’ is a 14 track album, with all instruments – apart from some drums – played by Keuning himself. The title is about seeing things from all sides, focusing on the details while not losing sight of the bigger picture. The album takes a look at our basic relationships with friends, family, and colleagues, and how we can feel trapped by our surroundings, as well as the people who rely on us, emotionally and/or professionally. Speaking about the album, Keuning says,
“The lyrics speak for themselves. The beauty of the words is they’re open-ended enough that you can relate them to your own situation.”
