Canadian/Irish Keith Mosfet is the definition of an "artist". Using inspiration from impressionist oil paintings and combining his background in electronic engineering, Keith took on the challenge of writing, recording and mixing the whole of his 2019 EP 'Superficial Hypocrite'. "I'd have my vision, listen to the song and make changes in my head, record in layers, listen, then record and mix new ideas on top. Layering like in oil painting"
Clearly heard in Keith's new single are his indie-rock influences like Joy Division, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard , Beck and Oh Sees but with his own unique, psychedelic twist, using vocal effects and layering synthesizers to showcase his unique artistry. His latest release Lakeshore Bus is adorned with gorgeous trumpet and reflects on those fleeting moments with strangers on public transport.
On his 2020 single 'It's You', Keith continues to showcase his songwriting, creative and engineering skills, and shares his softer side. He describes the small moments in which one can fall in love while also encompassing his love of experimental, high energy music. "When I was writing the lyrics for 'It's You', I wanted to describe the first time I saw her face, the first time we danced, to the first time I saw her smile .... every moment was important and I wanted to put that into this song"
Mosfet possesses that rare ability to perfectly balance exuberant rhythmic arrangements with emotionally resonant lyrics. As the music carries you along in its unavoidable embrace, you quickly surrender to its melodic ebbing and relax as the pop-tinged forces saturate your senses.
Public transport can be a wonderful place when you look around, and let people in, even for a second. Lakeshore Bus highlights the small moments shared between two people.
