Lemongrass release a new single ‘Who Knew’, via Edinburgh-based East Records.
Recorded in the attic of an old brewery during a storm in Scotland just before lockdown, the track, we’re told, “reflects on the death of a loved one and the impact that that has on those close to them, and personally.”
The project of vocalist and musician Fraser Johnston, he is joined for the single by live Lemongrass band member and frequent collaborator Ruairidh Farquharson on bass.
‘Who Knew’ is the first of three upcoming singles, precluding an as-yet unnamed album, and follows previous release ‘Another Day’ / ‘Good Times’.
The new material sees Johnston move from recording on an old Tascam 424 cassette recorder to a more sophisticated setup – again recorded to tape, but on this occasion at Sala Studio in Edinburgh.
“We hope this single can be the beginning of a new era for the project,” Johnston says. “We hope to reach out to all the introverts just like me, and to create a world that allows people to find a moment of quiet, reflection, or meditation in the mania of the world today.”
