Ahead of the release this week, beautiful folk quartet Kenneth Minor shares another track from On My Own, their very unique new album!

The contextual framework is already provided by the title of the new single Age of Reason, which initially seems misleading, and could arouse associations with the Age of Reason at the end of the 18th century and writers such as Thomas Paine. But at the end of the song it becomes clearer that band mastermind Christiani longs for a new, modern age of reason, in which mass consumption, loss of democratic structures, warmongering, the gap between rich and poor, etc. simply seem unreasonable. That this idea is based on a deliberately idealized hope can be heard between the lines and also in the music itsself that staggers between melodic beauty and melancholy.

Listen here:


The new 12 track Kenneth Minor album On My Own will be out this friday, October 4th on Unqiue Records.

Kenneth Minor presents his third, previously unreleased, album. After two highly-acclaimed longplayers In That They Can Not Help It (2010) and Phantom Pain Reliever (2017), performances at home and abroad (from Wiesbaden to London) and the Innocent Award 2017 in the category "Best Singer Songwriter“ in his pocket, Kenneth Minor introduces his probably most multi-facetted album under the title On My Own, without losing the common theme: stomping folk blues, picking wrested from the fingertips, swamp, warm, fuzzy and soulful electric guitar riffs with punk attitude and incisive slide guitar, minimalist style, relaxed folk, idiosyncratic beat in a contemporary sound design - without appearing clichéd. His melodious character voice, supported by harmonious choir singing, oscillates between fragile expressiveness and self-assured announcements, paints poetic-linguistic images of the inner and outer world and spans the contentual arc between autobiographical experience and social criticism.
