Perpetually Out Of Fashion

by Kai Welch

/
  • Compact Disc (CD)

    After years of collaboration, Kai has a beguiling new solo project. Drawing from past experiences but seeking to explore new sonic terrain, Kai has written a set of songs that is set to establish him as one of Nashville’s most unique voices. Tracks like “Perpetually Out Of Fashion” distill years of Kai’s musical influences - folk, indie, and a strong pop sensibility - into mere minutes, making for a listening experience that refreshingly defies genre and leaves us like a late-night snacker - satisfied but secretly hoping for more. “Sweet Abandon” is a bare bones slow waltz that showcases Kai’s yearning vocals atop a warm backdrop of old-time strings. These tracks are just a sampling of what listeners can expect from his Perpetually Out Of Fashion EP, to be released later this year. Recorded and self-produced, the Perpetually Out Of Fashion EP also showcases his instrumental talents – he played almost every instrument himself – as well as cameos from a few distinguished friends (his critically-acclaimed roommate Langhorne Slim sings a background vocal on “Baby Where”, and inimitable Appalachian fiddler Rayna Gellert shows up on “Sweet Abandon”).

    Comes in a hand-crafted Stumptown Printers Package, with artwork by Shawn Hall.

about

Stand-outs like the slow burning title track, and haunting “Sweet Abandon” will keep you coming back to this potent collection of songs. This EP brings much delayed satisfaction as Kai's sophomore release. It was recorded over a period of a year, with the help of a few friends, amidst his full schedule of producing, scoring, and spearheading multi-day music adventures through some of America's most beautiful scenery (www.musicforwildplaces.com).

Track Name: Perpetually Out Of Fashion
What if I was a rose?
what if you were a rose?
when we're withered and old
Where do we go?

mm

Everyday it's like a new sensation
everybody's tryina bring something back
I'm perpetually out of fashion
all these pretty girls dressed up in black
she grabs her purse fulla first world problems
baby's gotta get a pill to solve em
it's hard to eat this well and still stay hungry
yeh yeah, oh

Heard you flew straight at the sun
heard you got closer than anyone
but everyone knows what becomes
straight at the sun
(and you said)
Forget about what you heard
it's not about what you heard
all the noise, all them words
tell me where it hurts

Everyday it's like a new sensation
everybody tryna be a star
I'm perpetually out of fashion
all these pretty girls in pretty pretty cars
grab yer purse fulla first world
baby gotta get a pill to solve em
it's hard to eat this well and still stay hungry
yeh yeah, oh

It's just the same old news
Sit back and watch it roll

And what if I was a rose?
and what if you were a rose too?
when we're faded old and used up
then what do we do?

Everyday it's like a new sensation
don't get caught out in the clothes you used to wear
the party's movin to that place you heard about
the girls are walkin that new walk, and walkin out
to go out dancin to the new vibration
nobody ever seen a move quite like this
we're rollin easy with our pockets full o dough
yeah yeah oh
I'm addicted to my hesitations
I'm a phony be the first to admit
I'm offended that we are not naked
yet yet whoa
clouds burst fulla first world problems
baby go and get a pill to solve em
it's hard to eat this well and still stay hungry
Yeah yeah whoa
It's just the same old news
Sit back and watch it roll
Sit back
