Kevin Krauter is a member of Hoops, who released a delightfully breezy debut album last year. Now he's setting out on his own solo voyage with the debut album Toss Up arriving via Bayonet Records on June 15th.

The first cut to be previewed from Toss Up is the utterly charming 'Rollerskate', a song that glides on simplistic dreamy indie guitars and drums, then takes an uptick towards the sky on subtle synth melodies towards its conclusion. Through this dreamy haze, Kevin Krauter relays a tale of relinquishing anger in favour of peace - even though there are trigger points all around him as he makes his way through the day. But Krauter is determined to stay equanimous; "As I slowly rollerskate through a wall of hate/ I was trying to save my soul/ but what's it for?" Although Krauter often feels overwhelmed by life's many tribulations, big and small, he still comes out of the other end with a tranquil mindset. Overall, 'Rollerskate' is a perfect vessel for this lightheartedness in times of trouble, as it's absolutely impossible not to feel like you're swimming through sunshine as you listen to the glistening melodies and Krauter's playful lyrics like "feel like every single say is a piece of cake/ I was trying to take some home."
