Everyone searches for their place, but along the way it’s easy to forget that the real essence of living is to engage in it, to not only experience it but embrace the chaos and uncertainty and elation and pain and everything in between. As Jack Kerouac so poignantly and simply put it, it’s the ragged and ecstatic joy of pure being. It’s this desire to experience and live all life has to offer that so brilliantly pervades Brisbane’s Yves Klein Blue debut album, fittingly called “Ragged & Ecstatic”.
The past couple of years have seen Yves Klein Blue walk a path of highs. From the moment schoolmates Tomlinson and guitarist Charles Sale bonded over a love of music and realised their aspirations stretched far beyond their jam room, their path was set. Adding drummer Chris Banham and bassist Sean Cook, the quartet quickly and organically crafted their own sound that swam against the tide of the music scene around them.
About this track...
On ‘Getting Wise’ Michael Tomlinson’s lyrical witticism with classic intonation voices a generation’s indecision, set to a danceable indie beat. “Ragged & Ecstatic” was recorded in LA with producer Kevin Augunas (Cold War Kids) at the helm.
