More Information'Raisin Heart' is the first single from Mosman Alder's debut EP "Burn Bright."
Brisbane’s Mosman Alder make a statement of intent with first single ‘Raisin Heart’. From the triumphant introduction, sustained by guitar, piano and violin alike to the dark, brooding lyrics, ‘Raisin Heart’ introduces frontman Valdis Valodze as an emerging storyteller out front of an accomplished six-piece.
Valodze wrote much of ‘Raisin Heart’ whilst in Germany. He attributes the dark lyrical content not to experiences in his life, but to an expansion on many of the books he was reading at the time. With Kaa, Neil Gaiman and American short story writers Pinckney Benedict and Breece D’J Pancake credited as his biggest influences, it’s little wonder the lyrical content reads beautifully, whilst unfolding a tale of a shriveling, sluggish heart.
