A Voice like Liquid Gold — C Duncan’s Psychedelically Fringed New Track is Here

We were simply blown-away by the performance of C Duncan (Christopher Duncan) at this year’s Great Escape Music Festival in Brighton — so much that we could not wait to get home to hear the new song “Garden” taken from the forthcoming album ‘Architect’ — out on July 17th.

Christopher wrote and recorded this album alone in his Glasgow flat on a bedroom studio setup, gradually adding each layer and each instrument one at a time, building up the breadth of the pieces.

If you have not witnessed this incredible musician before, we urge you to check-out his shows (dates below) and listen to this track (Garden)…

C Duncan - the voice hides a strange and longing regret...

If you have ever wished that folk artists would be a bit more, well, adventurous… Then your dreams are about to come true.

C Duncan is so much more than a man with a guitar. His voice is like liquid gold and his intent is to weave magic with those songs.

Garden is British psychedelia — whirly, romantic, colourful and melancholy (in all the right ways), but with enough tie-dyed, bleached-out, complexity to cheer up even the most serious minded folk aficionado.

And that voice, well, it’s as smooth as buttermilk and it reaches highs that only a moth on the wing could aspire to.

Yes, this will soothe all your wounds at once.

And the Rubber Soul up-beat tempo is convincingly giddy up, so you’ll never get bored…

Exploding rainbows of psychedelically fringed sound & the kind of beautiful voice that makes you happy to be so alive.
