Kisskadee shares the title track from her forthcoming LP via The FADER – “a slippery chamber-pop gem”
“This song, and the record, are about exploring the myths, mysteries, and possibilities beyond death. I sing “Stars shake the atmosphere, will I ever let go of this fear? Will a solid moment appear?” Amongst the narrative arc of the record, this is where the narrator stands alone with the power and terrifying beauty of the universe, asking what meaning she dares to make. I allude to a Christian mystic myth when I sing of a black hole raising her corpse from the dead- the universe going through the same life, death, and resurrection cycle as the Christ figure. As the pop elements of this song merge with the noise elements of the song, so do human elements of energy emerge from the cosmic soup. Lyrically and musically, “Black Hole Era” explores the contradictions of life and death, human and unhuman, and asks what they all mean for the individual’s will to love.”

THUNDER RELEASE NEW SINGLE & LYRIC VIDEO – ACROSS THE NATION
When normal service resumes and the band embark on a run of arena shows in May 2022, it is going to be a spectacle like no other. This song makes that clear, explains Luke. “This is a very direct song, about being in a band but not being able to tour. The frustration we feel because of that is huge, so we’re very much looking forward to the time when we can get out there and play. We managed to get two Christmas gigs done at the end of last year, and it was so great to be back on stage. It was emotional for the crowd as well as us: for a lot of people who came along, it was the first time they’d been out in about 18 months!”
