SISTER COOKIE RELEASES INTOXICATING NEW SINGLE ‘CRUCIFY’
5 Ottobre 2021
Sister Cookie unveils her new single ‘Crucify’, a spicy stew of dark, intoxicating sounds and the next single from her eagerly anticipated debut album ‘In The Blue Corner’.
A holy-rolling rhythm on the drums & bass is pumped up by baritone sax, offset against the wailing tenor. The whole thing is spiked with coruscating guitar sounds and heated up by organ lines which intensify as the song builds whilst the brooding, cryptic lyrics are sermonised in a low, hypnotic drawl, climaxing in an unsettling and powerful cry.
Speaking about the single, Sister Cookie says: “The music was built from ancient blueprints which have been corrupted by a 21st century artist. The words are inspired by the biblical story of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, but the song is about the darkness in humanity. It’s about the ethereal reality of love, specifically love for a figure or entity – and how quickly that can change, how soon that shallow love, or adoration, can be lost. It’s a song about betrayal, about loneliness, about a kind of spiritual death.”
“In today’s society of increased isolation, social media and echo chambers, ‘cancel culture’ thrives and Crucify touches on that notion. I wrote Crucify to remind myself that everyone who says they love you is not your friend.”
