CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX Premieres Haunting New Music Video, “Bonefire”
The band comments, “We gift to you a musical curse on the miserable ruling class politicians! Again, working with Guilherme was a total pleasure and a complete win. He got the vibe and the intensity spot on. Plus, he raised the bar a whole lot with production value, so what we have is basically a little cult horror film, telling the story of Bonefire. The ruling class getting some just karma in the flames.”
“Even though ‘Closer’ is a song I started working on shortly after I released my debut EP two years ago, it feels very now to me. It reflects what I’ve listened to and been inspired by since then and not least how my upcoming music sounds. ‘Closer’ is the beginning of a new chapter.” – Freja Drakenberg

KT Laine is a study in subtlety. Her songs radiate a positively warm glow, sweetly burnished and unhurried. And while her performances make them seem effortless, they are also finely constructed pieces that recall certain like-minded contemporary singer-songwriters (Angel Olsen, Cate Le Bon, Big Thief) as much as ’60s and ’70s legends like Linda Perhacs, Sybille Baier, and Judee Sill.
