“Soulmate” is the first single outtake from the upcoming THE SETTING SON album “Spring Of Hate”. The sound on “Soulmate” and the rest of the album is quite different compared to the debut album that came out 2 years ago. Main songwriter Sebastian T.W. Kristiansen has obviously grown older and found a steady group of band mates that makes “Spring Of Hate” sound more like the work of a band.
“Soulmate” is a catchy song with clear references to the 60´s and an amazing chorus that goes straight to the brain as the perfect blend of psychedelic pop and garage rock. The second track on the single is “Girl Of Sorrow” which shows a different and more melancholic side of the band.
“Soulmate” will be available as download 02.03.09 while “Spring Of Hate” is due out 20.04.09 as LP/CD and download. The album is produced by Lorenzo Woodrose in Black Tornado and is mixed by Johan Gellett at Studio 73.
