Kali Horse Stray Into The Unknown On Psych-Pop Hymn ‘In The Water’ | News
Kali Horse have shared new single ‘In The Water’.
The project is propelled by two key members of the Toronto DIY community, two women who have spent years gigging around the city. Kali Horse is part of their creative evolution, and new single ‘In The Water’ is another fantastic step forwards.
Out now, it comes as Kali Horse confirm plans to play the New Colossus, which is their first show outside of Canada. A catchy rendezvous with psych-pop melodies, ‘In The Water’ has an infectious quality which can’t be forced.
Breathlessly natural, the lyrics speak eloquently of queer identity, and come self-billed as a “foray into our personal unknown…”
The start of something pretty damn special, ‘In The Water’ comes equipped with a snazzy new video, which you can watch first on Clash.
Kali Horse comment…
“We wrote this song with a simple in-the-box beat, pressed play on Sam’s looper. Des decided to freestyle vocal to remove her from her overthinking and allowed the channel to be open. Sometimes on three, sometimes on four, but for whatever reason, there was conviction behind the vocal entries. No guitar was decided early on, straying from original form.”
“In The Water” is Kali Horse’s foray into our personal unknown. A mixture of the dripping of a faucet digitally tuned to its unusual key and beats inspired an exploration of how analog recording and digital music coexist. The vocal harmonies ripple, the way aquatic movement is constantly reacting to itself. The driving rhythms and sirens’ call are both inviting and foreboding. The lyrics repeat like echoes in a chamber taking on new meaning. “Don’t ask if you will ever change” might seem pessimistic at first, but the underlying thought is not to worry – of course you will.”
Don’t forget to pre-save ‘In The Water’ now.
