SONGS OF QUIET RAGE AGAINST THE STATUS QUO, SPEAKING OF THE UNSPEAKABLE IN WAYS NO ONE ELSE IS DOING
Dark Soul Safari’s first EP is released on 20 July 2022.
The EP is available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Instagram/Facebook, TikTok, Resso & Luna, YouTube Music, Amazon, Soundtrack by Twitch, Pandora, Deezer, Tidal, iHeartRadio, ClaroMusica, Saavn, Boomplay, Anghami, KKBox, NetEase, Tencent, Qobuz, Triller (beta), Joox, Kuack Media (beta), Yandex Music (beta), MediaNet, and Snapchat.
The first track of the EP, “That’s How I Roll”, tells the story of a road rage incident and explores how aggressive behavior and uncontrolled anger can easily lead to tragedy. The track contains explicit lyrics; a radio version is available.
The title track, “Running with Scissors”, is a haunting lament for humanity’s (future) collapse in the wake of climate change and political failure, which somehow manages to morph into a kind of celebration at the end. The track contains explicit lyrics; a radio version is available.
The third track, “Jim the Priest”, tells the story of a charlatan evangelical preacher who exploits his followers for monetary gain and “special favours”.
The final track, “Still Chasing Windmills”, takes inspiration from the famous novel “Don Quixote” by Miguel de Cervantes. An ageing man reflects on his history of misadventures but refuses to give up hope.
The stark beauty of this exquisite sonic landscape is brilliantly brought to life by Top 10 producer/engineer Andy Brook (Status Quo, Bonnie Tyler, Ginger Wildheart, Mel Gaynor, Tiger Lilies and many others).
