Basement Revolver – Wax and Digital

Heute feiert die neue BASEMENT REVOLVER EP ihren Geburtstag und das knapp ein Jahr nach ihrer Debüt-LP ‚Heavy Eyes‘. Die neue Platte knüpft and den Sound der Kanadier nahtlos an. Genau dafür lieben wir Sängerin Chrisy Hurn und ihre Band.

Der Titeltrack bildet das Herz der Platte: „‚Wax and Digital‘ is about me and my husband, the music that we love together, and how that music has shaped our relationship. In a broader sense it is about how culture informs our lives – even though culture changes rapidly and is temporary, we will always have certain things to hold on to, like music, to look back on and feel sentimental about. I hope that people take away a sense of nostalgia within their own lives, from the things that have helped them to fall in love, or that people think about the things that they have lost, but with thankfulness. Life is a crazy mess, but it’s beautiful and confusing and poetic, may we never forget the things that help us to make some sense of it,“ sagt Chrisy.

Zur Feier des Tages schenkt uns die Band noch ein neues Video zu ‚Have I Been Deceived‘, herausgekommen ist ein wunderschönes Stop-Motion-Video. Chrisy: „Think about “Have I Been Deceived” as an open letter to God. This past year, I have been feeling like I was brainwashed. I was taught to think in a particular manner, taught to love in a specific way, taught to think about my body and sexuality in a specific (ahem oppressive) way, and quite honestly at the time, I ate that shit up. I was the girl in highschool trying to convert all my friends, telling everyone to stay abstinent, listening to every Christian band that sounded almost as good as the real thing. That was my entire identity. Throughout my twenties, this identity fell apart.“
