Evocative Melbourne indie pop band Kill the Darling launch their single ‘The Tower, Our World and its Lovers’ at Bakehouse Studios today, Friday 3 February in the Scrap Museum with support from Thando and Cash.
Recorded in the rural Victorian town Bunyip, the single illustrates the magnetic beauty of their live performance, while the film clip for ‘The Tower, Our World and its Lovers’ captures the song’s mysticism. It explores the power of women and the superstitions that surround them.
Like the film clip, their music is cinematic, creating lush soundscapes with both vocal and guitar loops and allegorical lyrics. Shot entirely outdoors in Victoria’s Strathbogie Ranges, it is an eerie and visually stunning meditation on relationship to land and feminine strength. The clip was conceptualized by the band’s Tasha Lloyd and realized by Caitlyn O’Grady and Sammie Jackson. It was funded by a band-run Pozible campaign.
