mp3 premiere: "Big Snake Song" - Beverly Tender
Beverly Tender is unlike anything you've heard before. With the release of 2015's Lord Mayor Makes 1,000 Speeches, the band carved out a genre and a niche entirely their own and that uniquely beautiful art returns on "Big Snake Song," the first single from an upcoming Disposable America release, What Have You Done To My Water out 11/17. The track begins with booming, moody strings, vocals that rapidly shift from garbled shouts to crystal clear and impactful cries. Throughout it all, strings and percussion work in perfect harmony, drifting apart and then coming back together, leading you slowly through their spellbinding single. "Big Snake Song" is given time to unravel and reveal the full extent of its story. Much like its snake namesake, it coils out, and in, gripping you tight in its hypnotizing gaze. It's a track that demands your attention not with flashy instrumentals or overwhelming vocals but with a sound so rare and complex that one feels as if they've stumbled on something to be fully treasured.
