 BRAND NEW VIDEO: ‘A Beautiful Day For Murder’

LABEL: ENERGY SNAKE RECORDS

securedownload-1Cinematic psych outfit Saint Agnes have released their new single, ‘A Beautiful Day for Murder’ via visceral London Label Energy Snake Records. The track is a twisted ballad; a love song to death itself. ‘It’s the soundtrack to a dark and beautiful Western where Lana Del Ray stares down nick Cave in a saloon bar stand-off’ says founding member Kitty Austen, who fronts the band with Jon Tufnell. After releasing their debut single as a duo and packing out The Sebright Arms in suitably raucous fashion, the pair return with a trademark slice of cinematic, Tarantino-style lushness. 

 

B-side ‘Where the Lightning Strikes’ is blues stomping, dirty rock n roll with psychedelic organs, screaming guitars and haunting harmonica. ‘Imagine Ennio Morricone writing the score for a remake of Easy Rider.’ 

 

Jon and Kitty met whilst playing in their respective bands (The Lost Souls Club & Lola Colt) and immediately bonded over musical influences. Their onstage chemistry is palpable and they are now joined by Matt Devine and Ben Chernett, the no-nonsense bass and drums powerhouse who dress as sharply as The Bad Seeds. 

 

Saint Agnes are very much a DIY band and like fellow psych-collective Temples, record and produce their own music in their East London studio and have directed both upcoming music videos.
