Here we go, it’s another single from Caligula’s Horse! ‘Slow Violence‘ is the band’s second offering in anticipation of their upcoming album Rise Radiant, and it’s minimalism is addictive. There’s something about how this song is stripped back that allows it to have more impact, and I’m feeling some Karnivool vibes, are you?
Vocalist, Jim Grey, says of the track:
“Our goal with Slow Violence was to create something more stripped back and minimal musically speaking, letting the guy’s performances speak for themselves. The result was something full of energy and with a powerful message that we’re all really proud of, and the hectic music video ended up capturing that explosive vibe perfectly. The idea for the themes in Slow Violence came out of my own frustrations with very visible hypocrisy in the face of a desperate need for change, and a youth that is crying out for unity in crisis. Slow Violence expresses that frustration along with the unifying message that one way or another, all are inevitably made equal.”
