Kendall Street Company, the dynamic and innovative music collective, is thrilled to announce the release of their third highly-anticipated single, "Excusezmoi," from their upcoming album, Separation95, set to be released in full on September 22nd, 2023. The track incorporates elements of progressive jazz, dream pop, and psychedelia, displaying influence by artists such as Crumb, Hiatus Kaiyote, and The RH Factor.
The three singles from Separation95 are fairly unique on paper: “Eyes of the World” is a fusion reharmonization of the eponymous Grateful Dead hit, and “Tightrope” is a dystopian stoner rock track with original lyrics. “Excusemoi,” however, is an instrumental, save for a French-language audio sample which concludes the track. Kendall Street Company are no strangers to using spoken-word audio samples, having experimented with their use on their record The Year The Earth Stood Still (2021). Despite their differences, there is an unmistakable and cohesive sonic theme which unites the tracks and foreshadows an album that successfully uses the studio as its own instrument, from a group widely known for their energetic and improvisational live performances.
Accompanying the single is a music video filmed by Hourglass Sessions at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, VA. The video incorporates psychedelic editing techniques, vibrant costumes, and colorful lighting which amplify the track’s sonic emotion.
“Excusezmoi” is now available for streaming on all major platforms. Separation95 will be released on September 22nd, 2023. For more information on Kendall Street Company and “Excusezmoi,” visit the band’s website or follow them on social media.
