Morbee says the melancholic feel to most of his tracks is aimed at reflecting of the flawed human journey

The singer-songwriter chats about his latest album, solo career, The Parlotones, and his musical influences in the audio above.

Thematically, when I write songs, I do sometimes delve into the melancholic, but more from the perspective to say that life is fraught with hurdles, we do have obstacles in our way and there will be moments of sadness but the fact it the journey of life is a privilege and there are beautiful moments.

Kahn Morbee, Musician

The bitterness is a part of the journey so that you can appreciate the sweet parts of life.

Kahn Morbee, Musician

My primary focus has really been The Parlotones, I mostly tour with The Parlotones and when there's a bit of downtime I would work on some solo stuff and tour that as well.

Kahn Morbee, Musician

The fact that touring has been very haphazard over the last 18 months meant that I had a bit more time on my hands... a lot more songs are on the way and the next project will be focused on The Parlotones.
