Continuing the revival of Black tape for a blue girl’s classic 90s darkwave/ethereal sound.
I launched the campaign to raise $1500 to create a collectible edition of Blood on the snow for my Kickstarter supporters. We reached the goal in 4 days! 12 hours later the 100 Exclusive Edition CDs (signed, numbered, with backer's name in the booklet) were all pledged. An additional 50 unsigned / unnumbered Standard Edition CDs were added, which sold through on the final day of the campaign. 50 additional standard copies are for the band and a few for my Italian distributor.
This release continues stylistically from These fleeting moments and features the same band. Oscar & Dani sing; Nick plays viola; Brian plays drums, and Chase plays guitars and synths on one track. I wrote the songs and play guitar and electronics.
The lyrics are darker and bleaker than the album; I get a sense the theme is futility, though perhaps more specifically it’s about dedication to lost & hopeless causes. The dark mood of the last six months of American politics inspired a desolate and worried anxiety as I was writing these songs.
