Funeral Advantage Stream New Album NECTARINE In Full On Billboard.com
Today, Billboard.com is streaming Funeral Advantage's new album Nectarine in full. The album will be officially released tomorrow, Friday, February 22 via Sleep Well Records. The indie rock/bedroom pop project of Massachusetts's native Tyler Kershaw has been lauded by publications such as Boston Globe, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, VanyalandBrooklyn Vegan.
Kershaw has peeled away the intense personal emotions seen in his previous releases and spent time searching for other things to address.
"I was having a hard time relating to my previous output. I wanted to make art about things other than myself and my experiences," explains Kershaw. "I have a much healthier relationship with Nectarine than I did with my other releases."
The new self-removal from the subject matter of his latest album made way for a more straight forward approach to the relentlessly sad, danceable pop music that has earned Funeral Advantage an international cult following.
"You have to learn balance between leading a mentally sound personal life and the life you try to imitate while people are looking at you," he continues. "My songs are going to be about how certain people deal with that, for now."
