Laden with satirical snapshots and observations of the human psyche, last year’s Pink Mirror found Jeremy Tuplin in excellent form. With a vaunting Scott Walker baritone and razor-sharp Neil Hannon lyrical wit, Tuplin’s unconventional, conversational and intimate release gave us one of 2019’s most unexpected and cherished highlights.
Tuplin now returns, cast no longer in the role of satirical bard, but as a fully emboldened auteur of space folk – following in the crazed lineage of Wayne Coyne and Gruff Rhys – with the delightful new single Space Magic; the first transmission from upcoming album Violet Waves.
A floating gravity free track of hazy exploration, Space Magic, springs on chiming bursts, imitating the delicate fall of stardust from space. Tuplin’s signature vocal anchors the whole arrangement, amid the exuberant guitar solos and exploding snaps of delight on an enchanting mixture of inspired cosmic pop.
