The Skinny: Guitar virtuoso Theodore Kalantzakos and his power duet TKG is thrilled to announce the release of the latest single “No Shortcuts (Paving The Way Forward)”, available now worldwide via SoundCloud – listen above! Following their full-length album Pattern Partner (2012), TKG strikes again with a new composition full of adventurous melodies, fretless guitar solos, electro elements and ambient textures composing a picture of modern and fresh sounds.

Theodore Kalantzakos commented: “We inspired from A. Machado’s (1875-1939) words ‘Wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking.’ Since our last release it was a hard working, but at the same time, an enjoyable period for the band. This composition is for all the ‘wanderers’ who love to keep their head down and working hard on ‘paving’ their ‘way forward’. This composition could also be a page in the band’s virtual ‘music diary’ witnessing that ‘road’ with ‘no shortcuts’, made ‘by walking’.”
