Kai Fish’s day job is playing bass guitar in London band Mystery Jets, but in his spare time he has also written songs for the likes of Mark Ronson and The Count and Sinden. He has described his forthcoming debut solo album, ‘Life in Monochrome’, as ‘introspective’ and the first single from it certainly backs up his statement. Starting slowly with a simple guitar motif below Fish’s baritone voice it soon builds into a wave of distorted guitars and Fish asking "Will you come with me?". The tone of the track is very much self-reflecting and a leap away from the sonically lighter work of his alma-mater Mystery Jets. It bodes well for the album, and serves well as a taster of what’s to come.
Album Life in Monochrome is available on September 26th
