For Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden, The Shape The Color The Feel is a sort of homecoming. But it’s also a leap into the great unknown. Six years after their acclaimed debut, KT+SOS are back with a newfound urgency, bringing a sweeping, cinematic feel to their emotive, melodic rock. Mixing echoes of The National & Cocteau Twins, The Shape The Color The Feel, marks a bold new step for Tucker as both a singer and songwriter, as she moves effortlessly between intimate, soul-searching confessionals and soaring anthems for the open road. Originally from Seattle, their self-titled debut was produced by Ryan Hadlock (Metric, Blonde Redhead, The Lumineers) and released on Tucker’s own Red Valise label. Their new release, The Shape The Color The Feel, was produced by Konrad Snyder (Kopecky Family Band) and Jordan Lehning (Caitlin Rose) and recorded in Nashville. The record has shimmering guitar with moody, atmospheric synths to create a dream pop atmosphere — fall into it below.
“Tucker, who could be mistaken for a hipper, younger Neko Case, has…got a powerful voice that’s as bittersweet as it is silky smooth.”
