A collaboration between songwriter Ross Clark and producer Andy Monaghan, Fiskur, are set to arrive at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in the new year with tickets on sale now.
Mourning the demise of his band Three Blind Wolves, Clark became eager to experiment with his solo capabilities after not doing so for 9 years. After showing his friend, Monaghan, the outcomes of his endeavours, a plan began to be set in motion. Fiskur has let Clark branch out with his sound, with him even speaking about using synths and electronic drums.
With tickets selling fast, it’s clear that Fiskur is an act to keep an eye on. Playing their first headline show early 2018, their modern-guitar based sound has been praised by fans and critics alike after they made an impact supporting pals, ‘We Were Promised Jetpacks,’ on the European leg of the tour before supporting Pronto Mama’s sold out show at Tut’s. Having a polished edge, each song creates a signature dynamic sound that is laced with a certain intriguing intensity. Deep meanings and messages behind the songwriting process of their songs, for example, Clark has said that single ‘You Know Me So Well’ was inspired by “wanting to know how others perceive us, about knowing oneself but equally knowing that other people don’t necessarily see us the way we want them to”. The inspiration for their songs can flow from anything, even something as simple as their surroundings. Treating their listeners to something as simple as a catchy melody whilst offering an interesting point of view through the lyrics.
Coming to King Tut’s on February 2nd as part of the Celtic Connections line up with Lizzie Reid, Fiskur promises to exceed audience expectations.
