Today Kisskadee is sharing the sonically rich single/video “Brother” & announcing her new LP, Black Hole Era. Check out the premiere via Highclouds HERE. Black Hole Era is due May 6th via Anxiety Blanket Records. Pre-order the LP HERE.
Kisskadee is the maximalist project of multi-instrumentalist Kasie Shahbaz. Her orchestral arrangements and strange time signatures are a breaking away from traditional songwriting limitations, while also maintaining a lyrical, folk like sensibility. Elements of psychedelia and ambient chaos litter the record, while detailed imagery ground the chaos with vivid detail.
Black Hole Era uses the birth and death of the universe as a chronological allegory for childhood through adulthood. The record tracks our expanding circle of relationships as we age; first with mother, then with siblings, then with lovers. However, like the cosmos, as this circle expands, it is also dying. The record stands witness to the loss of childlike safety and the lonely longing of adulthood.
