BASTIAN KILLJOY’S NEW SINGLE “FOREWORD” OUT THIS THURSDAY!

 

Foreword Art Final2From all the kids at Wordsmiths, we are happy to announce the release of Bastian Killjoy’s new single “Foreword” from the forthcoming album “Sides Of Me”. Release date set for early to mid 2015.

The single will be available for streaming via Soundcloud and will be available for download via Bandcamp. This is a new stage of progression in Bastian’s career, moving towards a more abstract view of music, how music is perceived by the listener and the intentions of the artist.

Much of my music in the past has been solely focused on a broad experience of my surroundings, the external components that have had an impact on me as a person. While working on “Foreword, and much of this album, I have made a conscious decision to internalise my emotions and feelings towards existence itself and my growth. Without the influence of any external forces.

In this age, sometimes it’s hard to see what is actually real. With so many diversions, negativity and miss information shared with us on a daily basis. I needed to step back.

I feel this new work may not interest many people in the Hip Hop community. But it is something I do not fear. This is my evolution and I am hoping to connect with listeners from all countries, from all backgrounds. I am very happy to share this with you!”

SINGLE “RESONATE” OUT NOW ON TRIPLE J UNEARTHED

triplejunearthedI have released a brand spanking new single from my forthcoming EP “Earth, Air, Fire, Water” I wrote this song about preemptive war, which has been sparked by the Wests greed for oil, primarily the U.S. But this blame lands at all our feet. We need abandon this system, it has failed. While we continue to participate in the murder of children and pillaging of foreign countries for natural resources how can there be hope? You are the future, we are the change. I hope this reaches you. I could write so much more about this but I did write a song a bout it so here it is.

I wrote this song about what is happening in Syria right now, It is so sad that we are still supporting western cultures to plunder these countries for oil. where does it end? Anyway this is my thoughts on the subject and more broadly what is happening around us everyday.

Latest Album “Pained Landscape” 2013

BASTIAN KILLJOY PAINTED LANDSCAPE

This is my second full length album and my first solo project. All music and vocals were recorded at Wordsmiths Records.
So I asked all our fans to send in photo’s of themselves which we then turned into a mosaic.

The name “Painted Landscape” is a reference to our cultural diversity within Australia, that we all make up the landscape we live in. I then decided to hit up fans to choose a color out of 15 choices. the 15 colors represent the 15 songs on the album which we are still shooting clips for. 15 clips, 15 colors chosen by fans which represent their choice. I wanted to involve people as much as possible in this. So far we have released 2 film clips and are currently shooting the next one. I hope you enjoy this album, I love it!
