Select Captain Short Info

Kristian Gaarskjær’s musical alter ego Select Captain is ready with sophomore album Strings & Feathers two years after the release of the debut The Fear and The Lights.

The last two years Select Captain has released 2 albums, 1 EP, had numerous singles on national and local radio, and played more than 100 concerts in Denmark and Germany. Headlining and supporting bigger names as George Ezra, The Lone Bellow, Will Hoge, Austin Lucas, Joan Shelley and many more.

The new album shows completely new sides of Select Captain and the result is an album that expands the americana inspired sound, by incorporating inspirations from the 90’s indierock scene.

The songs on the album deal with the aspects of human feelings in a divided world. Loneliness, arrogance, greed, joy, despair and optimism go hand in hand, and gives the listener the sound of a world in change and disorder.

The album was recorded at Homeless Studios in Copenhagen and released through MINI ME RECORDS, October 14th 2016.
