“Hyacinth” by Kreajours delves into the depths of unrequited love capturing all its jealousy and desperation with a raw, psychedelic, and introspective exploration. The track, hooking from the first chord, emanates a sense of longing and melancholy and engorges us in a fictional romance between a young man and a prostitute.
Led by lead vocalist Campfire, Kreajours infuses “Hyacinth” with indie rock aesthetics and avant-garde sensibilities. Recorded under the glow of bright yellow rope lights, the song spirals you in a moody anguish drowned in fuzzy guitars and psychedelic haze. The gritty instrumentation perfectly mirrors the confusion and despair of the protagonist as he navigates the burning despondency of his unrequited affection.
While Kreajours is usually influenced by My Bloody Valentine, Radiohead Sonic Youth, Tame Impala, and Jack White, this song is an exception. “Hyacinth” is entirely theirs in sound and style. Comprised of Campfire, London Boy, Seany Soundscapes, Parentheses, and Z, Kreajours embodies a spirit of collaboration and shared passion, originating from Chicagoland. As Kreajours are hellbent on bringing their music to the live stage, audiences can anticipate immersive and unforgettable performances that showcase the raw energy and emotion embedded within their tracks.
With recent airplay on DKFM Shoegaze radio and a growing fan base, Kreajours is poised to make waves in the indie music scene, leaving an indelible mark with their introspective lyrics and mesmerizing soundscapes.
So stay tuned with Kreajours and listen to the hazy jealous anguish of “Hyacinth.”
