While most of us are gearing up for the crunchy foliage and pumpkin spice lattes of fall, Ohio-based electro-rockers Damn The Witch Siren are evoking signs of spring with the whimsical new video for “Faerie Garden,” the second single off the duo’s forthcoming debut album, Back To Dreaming, premiering exclusively today on LADYGUNN.
Inspired by the twinkling pop of the 80s, as well as the moody beats of trip-hop and the bubbly synths of 8-bit music, “Faerie Garden” is a wholly enchanting slice of melodic electro-pop that, even without the floral, feminine aesthetics of its corresponding video, sounds exactly like what we image pastel colors would sound like. It’s magical, colorful, and light as a feather. Basically, if Marie Antoinette made a mixtape, this would be on it.
The music duo, which consists of Bobbi Kitten and Z Wolf, are just weeks away from releasing their new record, which they say they wanted “to feel like a fairy-tale.” Of “Faeire Garden,” Bobbi adds, “This song is like the heart in the center. It’s about love, dreams, magic, beauty, and how important it is to hold onto those things in this world.” We agree.
