UK born, Auckland based singer-songwriter Kenington releases his debut single 'Dollar For My Daydream' today - a precursor to his debut album Going Nowhere (Faster Than You) - out later this year.
Mark Kenington writes honest, reflective songs of a timeless nature wrapped in lush, catchy melodies. Songs that often mix a positive vibe with a darker and deeper lyrical message.
'Dollar For My Daydream’ is a track inspired by the exchange between Mark and a café waitress...and the fantasy that ensued. Punchy electric guitar and memorable melodies punctuated by Mark’s distinctive voice evoke the likes of Brit pop/ indie rock bands such as Supergrass and Blur.
The forthcoming album was recorded by award winning producer and engineer Andrew Buckton (Midnight Youth,The D4, Sommerest, Ekko Park) and is a collection of highly crafted, insightful catchy songs translated into beautifully sonic guitar pop soundscapes.
The accompanying video for 'Dollar For My Daydream' was a collective effort. Shot in Muriwai and directed in part by Josh Thom and Lucy Timmins, the video brings Kenington's fantasy to life.
