Kane Strang just put out a great new song called ‘Oh So You’re Off I See’ which is the first single off a new album expected to be released this year. Kane hails from New Zealand and has just signed an international deal with Dead Oceans (home of Kevin Morby). Kane put out a great album last year called Blue Cheese that made our Best of 2016 list. We also got the chance to interview Kane about his album which you should check out here. It’s great to see he’s continuing to grow and flourish as a young songwriter and he’ll be touring the US this year (see dates below).

More about Kane Strang’s new song via the press release…
Kane Strang has shared new music for the first time since 2016’s Blue Cheese in the form of “Oh So You’re Off I See.” It’s the first single from the New Zealander’s forthcoming album that he is currently putting the finishing touches on. That record is due out later this year on Dead Oceans.
On “Oh So You’re Off I See,” Strang has moved away from the bedroom and into the studio. The song is robust and bright, showcasing his new collaborative approach to recording and writing with his band. The four-piece twists Strang’s melodies upside down and pushes his hooks inside out.
Strang’s North American tour kicks off next month at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and takes him to Savannah Stopover, SXSW and Treefort. These are his first shows ever outside of New Zealand. A full list of dates is below.
