The cinematic beauty that is "Cracked Porcelain" by singer-songwriter Kris Kelly from the "Runaways" Album

Kris Kelly's track- Cracked Porcelain is a cinematic beauty of a song. Full fledged in it's musical arc, it feels like an eclipse of something bigger like it was coalesced from a novel or multi-part mini series or some other literary journey, that is how stuffed it feels, full of orchestrated dreams and back stories that you want to know and experience. Kelly who is from Austin, Texas wrote this alt folk masterpiece infused with chamber pop sways. It pushes and pulls you hard in lovely yet powerful ways. 

Cracked Porcelain is from the "Runaways" album to be released in August 2019.

"Kris Kelly evokes a bittersweet nostalgia of love and hurt in latest indie folk single, “Cracked Porcelain.” The track is the final single ahead of debut album, Runaways, due out August 29th. Kelly self-produced the album, recorded between NYC and LA with an all-star team of musicians (played for Alanis Morissette, Lana Del Rey), with arrangements from John Philip Shenale (Tori Amos, Jane’s Addiction), and mixed by Noah Georgeson (Joanna Newsom, Andy Shauf).

A native of Austin, Texas, Kris Kelly moved to NYC to study vocal performance and musical composition at NYU. After years of his original works at storied New York venues, he decided to leave everything behind, packed a suitcase, grabbed his guitar and flew to South America. He traveled for five years through Argentina and Brazil, met his now husband, and experienced the love, loss, and growth that would inspire his upcoming album, Runaways. Parade Magazine and Cool Hunting have respectively described his music as “sweet and soothing,” and “sublime.”
In new single “Cracked Porcelain,” Kelly sings of finding equilibrium between the sacred and the profane, carnal desire and true love, within the freedom of an open relationship. He says, “I think the LGBTQ+ community has a unique opportunity to redefine our relationships between sex and healthy partnerships, but it also comes with a great responsibility, and I think we often fail. I failed at least. And that’s ok, because I realized that if I wanted to be happy, I had to make a change.”
