Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson has unveiled his debut solo single, Kapow!. Bringing his signature lyricism to the track, Jamieson explores the thrill and emotions of first love. Jamieson's vocals soar above the guitar-led soundscape, bringing a refined maturity to the song. The captivating track is set to feature on a larger body of work from the musician.
Speaking of the track, Jamieson shares: "I had this music that had been floating around a little while and so I thought it would be good to put it out, more for me than for anything else. Kapow! will be the first song I release. It’s about that thrill and sense of wild abandonment one feels when falling in love for the first time; that kind of precipice moment where you stand and feel exhilaration and a rush – when everything is everything. I’ve actually been playing Kapow! in my live sets for a year or thereabouts…. I’ve been DM’d on socials asking about this mystery song in the set."
To celebrate the release, Jamieson will be releasing a limited edition 7” vinyl which is available to pre-order now. The musician will be hitting the road this March and April, performing across the east coast of Australia.
Kapow! is out now! Listen to the song below.
