Once in a great while, an artist, a band, an album explodes out of nowhere, defining a moment in time, perfectly encapsulating events making history before our very eyes, focusing a razor sharp ray of light onto the human condition in a particular place.
The artist is Karl Lundeberg, the band is Fascination Curve and the album is "Corona Time In Amerika".
Fascination Curve's "Corona Time In Amerika" is a brave and emotional statement concerning racism, political extremism and societal confusion as seen through the lens of the Corona pandemic.
Featuring a group of world class musicians and friends, the record is muscular yet lyrical, a delicately layered yet powerful soundscape.
"Corona Time In America" by Fascination Curve is a work of glittering tough love which always holds compassionate yet resolute action as the positive way forward.
