Desperate times call for committed songwriters.

Step forward Berlin-based, Dublin-born gothic-folk musician A.S. Fanning (top).

Formerly frontman of Porn Trauma and The Last Tycoons, Fanning is set to release the follow-up to his 2017 debut album Second Life.

The golden-voiced Fanning describes his new single ‘Abandoned’ as being based on…

“…the sense that there’s this other tier of society, whose actions have a huge impact on the rest of us, but who behave with complete recklessness and without consequences. I suppose the song is written from the point of view of someone who’s feeling those consequences.”

The striking video comes courtesy of Grant and Adam Conversano.

Nick says: Get the message.
