It’s been a while now since we’ve heard from Our Krypton Son, in their absence however, the Derry outfit have been quietly working away on a follow up to their fabulous eponymous debut.
The first taste of which, ‘Fool For Love’, appeared online over the weekend, in unmastered form it must be added. Mastered or not, it’s a doozy. It’s a sweet, sentimental love song that gently waltzes along with an endearing warm glow and punctured with some exquisite bouts of melancholy. McConaghy’s vocals are impeccable as usual, soothing, warmth and inviting. Always a magnificent songwriter, it is a timely reminder of what McConaghy and Co. are capable of, this might rank as the most affecting work to date.
Hopefully it won’t be too long till we here from Our Krypton Son again, maybe with a new album in tow. For now at least, you can check out ‘Fool For Love’ below.
