New Single Premiere: “A Fossil in Her Shadow,” by FuriousBall

New Jersey’s FuriousBall has returned with “A Fossil in Her Shadow,” a glazed dose of psych-pop ear candy that you’ll want to hear again and again.

FuriousBall, AKA Camino Sound’s Van Kapeghian, is already 13 releases deep, but this new record, Good No Good, might be his strongest yet.

Deeply inspired by the value of internal and visual perspectives, this album strikes a personal chord for Kapeghian, as his partner had recently undergone an emergency retinal surgery. The first $100 made from the release will even be donated to the Foundation to Fight Blindness.

The sound on this record is incredibly diverse, with some songs echoing a strong influence of early 90s underground rock, while others lean deeper into modern psychedelia with spirited experimental flourishes.

The lead single, “A Fossil in Her Shadow,” is a fine example of this successful combination of varied sounds. With twinkling xylophone, a cruising beat and cascading waves of keyboards, this catchy tribute to Kapeghian’s daughter conjures the cool of early Beck, the haziness of White Fence and the glossy electro production of artists like Air and Lemon Jelly. Check it out below!
