The Casket Girls have released their third album The Night Machines via Graveface Records. The Savannah, Georgia trio made up of sisters Phaedra and Elsa Greene and Ryan Graveface are said to be virtually elusive, but have maintained an impressive creative output and cult following.
The latest release to be taken from the album, ‘Tears Of A Clown’ is described by the band as a “protest song”. They say, Its reflective meditation on the current state of disrepair begs the question: Can we officially call it ‘rock bottom,’ so that the waves of change can begin to roll and crash?” Casket Girls’ Elsa Greene goes on to say. “There is a new American Dream. The intention is possibility, peace and love, dimension-wide. In the video, we use classic American symbolism representing the ideals this Country was built on, i.e. Peace and Freedom, and recontextualize in the modern forum.”
With it’s slow-and-low, sinister alt-sound and satisfying dirty dirge guitar sound, this shakes off the cobwebs of songs with a similar message and maintains a strong brooding feeling throughout. ‘Tears Of A Clown’ resonates as an unsettling song, but does so legitimately.
