The lyrics from Kung Fu Jesus’ first single are still swimming through my head several hours after I first gave them a listen.
The second track on the single “Wander” particularily stuck with me. “Why am I not moving faster?” is a thought that must have gone through everyone’s brain at some point, and the words are sung with beautiful reluctance over a trippy-60s backing. Overall the effect is a memorable song with a meaningful side to back it up.
Clinging to childish stories, but also about adult love, “Wolf” is a track designed for impact. It has all the trappings of a new lazy-indie anthem.
I enjoyed these two tracks. I’m looking forward to more.
