Returning to his magical world of dark fairytales and folklore pop - KRAMIES - will release his potent new single: “Social Light” on 19th April 2024.


His first new music since the release of his acclaimed 2022 album ‘Kramies’, which featured contributions from members of The Black Keys, Band Of Horses, and Grandaddy, the latest from the US alt/folk artist finds him teaming-up with Grammy winning producer Mario J. McNulty, who is known for his work with David Bowie, Prince, and Willow Smith to name a few.

Coined by Billboard Magazine as “the American Dreampop troubadour”, new single “Social Light” has all of the hallmarks that position his singular sound in a realm of its own. A cauldron of swirling melodies, yearning harmonies, and intoxicating melancholia; Kramies puts his soul into a song that is both as dark and enigmatic as the dead of night, yet as spacious and beautiful as a new day.

With a career spanning almost fifteen years and a long string of releases that have earned him extraordinary accolades, Kramies has a knack for eerie and ethereal songwriting that has gained him the attention of NME, Clash, NPR and the BBC and much more. His most recent self-titled LP made it onto seven “albums of the year” lists, with two of its singles featured in Top 10 radio charts. Under The Radar praised the album as possessing the “ethereal quality of a waking dreamscape”.

Much of Kramies’ success has come from his ability to be himself and stick to his clear artistic vision. He’s grown even more comfortable with his unique way of working, pushing his craft as an outsider who has firmly forged his own path and earned a cult appeal on both sides of the Atlantic in the process.

A powerful and wildly enchanting return for the Ohio songwriter, “Social Light” is the first single from a new EP due out autumn 2024 on VanGerrett Records.
