Saint Agnes - Vampire [CD]
Cat. no: DOGGR36
Release Date: 26th March 2021
The mini album “Vampire” is a thing of beauty. One that sees Saint Agnes amp up their vivid storytelling once again, emboldening raw and visceral emotions to take on a life of their own.
Physical copies of the mini-album (CD & vinyl) will feature ‘psalms’ - a series of meticulously crafted musical interludes that weave around the album, expanding and enriching the themes as they play out.
‘Humanity can be too much sometimes: too desperate, too evil, too difficult to process, so we like to blur very real-world narratives with larger than life fictions in order to cope with the chaos of it all a little better.’ - Kitty A Austen.
“Vampire” was born out of the band’s unstoppable creative ingenuity that inspired the creation of The Quarantine Diaries - a twisted collection of cover songs with accompanying vignette-videos filmed on an iphone in their east London flat during early lockdown. The endeavour received a response from none other than Nick Cave himself, hailing the reimagining as “chilling and superior” when he heard their cover of Grinderman’s ‘No Pussy Blues’.
“Expect some fantastically scuzzy rock with cinematic scope, and an electrifying show from frontwoman Kitty Arabella Austen and co” - The Independent.
“”The London rockers channeling the spirits of White Stripes and The Stooges” - Classic Rock.
“A grinding splurge of defiant rock’n’roll graffiti” - Q Magazine.
“Saint Agnes have created a unique cinematic sound and a rock ‘n’ roll Gothic image to match” - Daily Telegraph.
“Stomping, snarling psych rock” - CLASH.
“Saint Agnes kick out the jams with a fervour and sense of purpose that’s genuinely refreshing” - The Quietus.
