Along with his involvement in the jaunty lo-fi quartet Hoops, Kevin Krauter has also been working on a solo EP titled Changes. Back in September he released the first track, “Bachelor,” which gave the first hint that the EP will take a large step away from the fuzzy, jangly indie rock of Hoops and instead take on a more mellow and introspective persona. In “Fantasy Theme,” the Indiana artist’s newest release, it gets even more pained and gorgeous, as Krauter’s vocals drift and float beautifully on top of a meticulous acoustic guitar melody. There’s a tangible yearning within the instrumentals, and the simultaneous subtlety and depth of the track as a whole is absolutely brilliant.
Krauter’s debut EP will be released on December 2nd.
