Kramies ‘I Wished I Missed You’ Reviewed at Soul Kitchen

Marcel Proust wrote in Les plaisirs et les jours : “Is not absence, for those who love, the most certain, the most effective, the most vivacious, the most indestructible, the most faithful of presences? ”
I Wish I Missed You is an ode to this absence and presence that does not fade when we loved, when we love. A forest of recollections, fleeting, between sweetness and violence.

“I wish i Missed You” is an evocative noisy ballad reminiscent of certain cadences of dream pop, but also the writing of Mark Eitzel ecstatic. To make things more impressive, the stamp and writing Kramies, very close to the folk lullabies of the first Al Stewart. To accompany the song a video directed by film makers and label manager Cam Merton Australia’s Hidden Shoal , the label for which Kramies impact. The video is a dreamlike reverie in the form of a past love.

Kramies ‘I Wished I Missed You’ Reviewed at A Decouvrir Absolument

I have to talk seriously with Kramies, with my rude english to his American accent, we’ll understand us (till here it has works). But well, boy, that’s true, at the beginning we thought it would be easy, we explain that there is an invisible nylon yarn, a card hided in the handle, an optic effect, a mirror trick, and so we clumsily explain his first works talking about light shows or other things. For the following, we’re looking more scientific words, magnets under the table, some chemical reactions, technologic little helpers defying logic, and more or less it’s ok. For the following opus, tour de force, we’re unable yet to find reasons to discuss, so we used the religious fact, all is god will, we create god powers, angels touch, and twisting the phrases in poetical way, lying, and it work… narrowly.

Kramies ‘I Wished I Missed You’ Featured at Atwood Magazine

It rolls of the tongue in subtle waves of emotion. I wish I missed you… again and again, Kramies sings his refrain, a dark, bitter taste eschewing from his mouth. It hurts to close a door, but that pain manifests itself in a litany of ways. Kramies’ “I Wish I Missed You” is the heartbreakingly bittersweet closure on a love that’s run its course, exhausted its magic, and withered away.

Kramies ‘I Wished I Missed You’ Reviewed at Indiepoprock

Kramies composes atmospheric music and is one of the most beautiful pop stars . A stratospheric rock flight, the serial structure has a strange hypnotic power.

We enter as in a dark territory crossed by bright bursts. Written in a castle in Ireland, “I Wish I Missed You” reveals again the incomparable talent of Kramies to compose pieces totally inhabited with a spectral beauty. With this title, he also takes a step. And we guess that the upcoming album will be exceptional.
