Today’s track of the day is the brutally good new single from Saint Agnes, Brother – taken from EP Family Strange.
Kitty A. Austen (vocals/guitar), explains:
“Saint Agnes and our wider family are a fucked up tribe of weirdos, outsiders and freaks, and we are a home for anyone who’s never felt like they quite fitted. Our new EP is a celebration of the strange.
“We wanted to create something that was bold in its simplicity and disarming in its honesty. The songs have a child-like narrative – a direct voice that cuts straight to the heart of things in a way that only a kid can. The songs are about powerlessness and empowerment, bullying and being a bully, loving and hating the same person. The imagery is twisted and disturbing with shadows and monsters – just how a kid imagines things.”
