The Leipzig musician is quickly establishing himself as one of Germany’s standout songwriters of his generation and after already drawing comparisons to King Krule for his vocal delivery, this new cut showcases a breezy indie dream-pop instrumental much akin to the likes of The Drums and Mac DeMarco as it vies to be your uplifting anthem of the summer.
It follows on from previous track ‘Atmosphere’ – an ode to the UK Northern music scene. The song sought to highlight the world’s shared anguish caused by being forced apart during the pandemic, with the lyrics and anthemic vocals designed to inspire hope in the listener that we’ll be reunited soon. Now as we seem to be approaching the light at the end of the tunnel, Simon Graupner sharing ‘Absence’ is the perfect soundtrack to reunite with your friends to.
‘Absence’ is out now via Scruff Of The Neck.
