TUNE The Kecks - All For Me
Cross continental Garage Rock purveyors The Kecks have emerged from Hamburg lockdown with their most self aware, emotionally powerful and poignant work to date, with new dark, raw, twisted, romantic fantasy ballad All For Me. Having once again teamed up with producer JB Pilon at London’s Buffalo Studio, the band have indulged a much wider array of their influences with this release, exploring the more flamboyant pop elements of their sound likened to the likes of Bowie, Pulp, and The Last Shadow Puppets.
All For Me is a self aware love song; an almost sardonic expression of longing from a desperate sweetheart. Originally composed as a simple and straightforward romantic ballad, The Kecks and producer JB Pillion delved deeper into a dark fantasy world to deliver more emotion and power out of the song than a conventional pop delivery would have allowed. Singer Lennart Uschmann bares his soul in a gut wrenching one-take lead vocal which entwines with the expansive and pointed dynamic range of the band. It conveys a true emotional power and feeling which can only be conjured from real world experiences.
