The LP will be the third record released by A Permanent Shadow and will tackle topics loosely related to dysfunctional topics on a personal and geopolitical level. Musically, the LP will feature a guitar-driven sound that strays from A Permanent Shadow’s previous releases.
CP Fletcher comments:
“I feel a sense of sadness for not having a brother, but I’m fortunate to have a beloved sister. I celebrate my brother’s enduring spirit, which I believe is always with me.”
A Permanent Shadow has been making waves in the Barcelona music scene, refining a unique sound that explores an unparalleled sonic terrain. A band for want of a better description, the band’s only permanent fixture is CP Fletcher, who, for his recordings, surrounds himself with a rotating cast of musicians and producers. Fletcher used to be a drummer in various bands that went nowhere, so at one point, inspired by David Bowie’s death, he decided to form his band as a singer. The band involves various collaborators, although two musicians so far feature on all recordings: Albert Català, a classically trained piano player, helps CP whip the demos into shape, while renowned producer Valentí Nieto usually provides the finishing touches in the studio.
