The second single from Captain Handsome, Halloween, is out today on all digital platforms. It lands ahead of debut EP I Am Not An Animal which is set for release digitally and on limited edition CD on 31 January 2020.
The unseasonably titled Halloween is, in Captain Handsome’s own words, “part ode to Goth Christmas (the best day of the year) and part hardcore whinge about parties going wrong. If you’ve ever ended up as somebody else’s funny story, I hope you manage to exorcise it and move on rather than putting horror strings into a three minute lo-fi mope.”
Captain Handsome – Halloween
Premiered by Joyzine they said of the track, “Captain Handsome juxtapose delicate vocals, gentle guitars and light touch drumming with cringe-inducing tales of social awkwardness and screeching violin.”
Previous single I Wish I Had A Dog was praised by For The Rabbits, Get In Her Ears, Earthly Pleasures and played by 6Music and independent stations. For The Rabbits said it was, “simultaneously delightfully straight-forward and winningly, just the right amount of weird.”
