We’ve a great track premiere today from Glasgow based C Duncan, a special solo acoustic version of ‘For’ which was released late last year bringing praise from across the music press and support from many BBC DJs including Lauren Laverne who, as well as giving it plenty of airplay, featured it in her ‘6Music Recommends’ and ‘Headphones Moment’ features. Huw Stephens, Radcliffe & Maconie, Vic Galloway and plenty more joined in their support of the track.
The following is a beautiful solo Acoustic version (Bowlegs Recording), the original version features on his forthcoming LP on FatCat Records(due to drop in summer 2015).
Christopher’s new single ‘Say’ is out today available via iTunes here.
The son of two classical musicians, Christopher Duncan was drawn so persuasively to indie and alternative music and playing in school bands as a teen that he added guitar, bass guitar and drums to his existing repertoire of viola and piano, studying all five instruments at the same time.
Christopher wrote and recorded his album alone in his Glasgow flat on a bedroom studio setup, gradually adding each layer and each instrument one at a time, building up the breadth of the pieces. Though time-consuming, the process allowed for Christopher to lovingly assemble the intricacies and subtleties for this astonishingly intricate and subtle collection of music.
Christopher recently formed a live band to perform his pieces onstage. He has played in Glasgow and Brighton, with more dates and a full tour schedule to follow.
