Alternative electronic duo Oh, Be Clever have joined forces with AWOLNATION’s Kenny Carkeet and released a new track called “My Relgion” – stream it here: https://soundcloud.com/ohbeclever/my-religion/s-Jrn55. The haunting, raw and emotional song takes a darker turn, exploring the feelings and passion of destructive relationships.
“We had no idea what to expect going into this co-write with Kenny [Carkeet],” vocalist Brittney Shields explains. “Quite honestly, we were a little intimidated! The experience with Kenny and Jarvis [Anderson] (Saturn City) was absolutely amazing. They opened doors for me, as a writer, that do not get opened very often. The song was basically written about the destructive relationships that we, as human beings, get into. I was in one of these for about 6 months, and once I got myself out of it, I realized it was based purely on lust. I couldn’t let this person go because I was in love with the intimacy…and that was pretty much it. The ugly side of me was brought out in this ‘relationship’ and I couldn’t let it go because I was in lust. Kenny and Jarvis completely brought me out of my ‘box,’ so to speak, as a lyricist and I think the song is an interesting way to look at how humans view these destructive relationships.”
