The Bony King of Nowhere's new record has been a long time coming. Five years after his critically acclaimed album Silent Days, a new album will be out next spring.
The first single Are You Still Alive highlights certain patterns in society, most notably the impact of social media on interpersonal relationships and happiness. The question is much more than just the title of the song. It questions our behaviour in daily society, in multiple ways. Inspired by the observations of many sociologists, ours is the loneliest society ever.
The song itself promises a new album with a lot of punch and energy, while Vanparys is showing us all the hues of his voice.
