Promise & The Monster - 'Feed The Fire'
Promise & The Monster have shared the title track off forthcoming album 'Feed The Fire' which will be released by Bella Union on 22 January.
Billie Lindahl, the woman behind Promise & The Monster, brings a vivid landscape to life on 'Feed The Fire'. the record mixes light and dark, birth and death, mystery and imagination and intimate detail. Lindahl builds an analogue and digital soundscape around her enchanting voice, luring you deeper into her wild world than ever before.
The view keeps changing: ‘Time Of The Season’ is a more urgent rush of blood, with chiming guitar, ‘Hammering the Nails’ is gentler despite the image, “this taste of blood in metal”, and the tremelo guitar twang and an exquisite coda of Mariachi horns in ‘Machines’ resemble a slice of vintage Americana. Images of skin, flesh, bone and rust create a clash between humanity and the natural world, while the album finale, a cover of the traditional British folk song ‘Fine Horseman’, taps the same motherlode.
