WE KILL COWBOYS – new single
South Africa’s vibrant music scene is about to experience a seismic shift as Cape Town’s very own Psychedelic Grunge Rock pioneers, We Kill Cowboys, announce the release of their latest single, Earth Demon, out now on Mongrel Records. The track is set to captivate audiences with its powerful message and hard-hitting sound, setting the stage for the band’s forthcoming EP, The Rage, expected to drop at the end of January 2024.
We Kill Cowboys has always pushed the boundaries of musical expression, and Earth Demon is no exception. The band, known for their fearless exploration of diverse genres, has dedicated this song to all the narcissists out there. “It’s a love song, but one with a profound twist.” Says vocalist and guitarist Alex Muller. “Earth Demon delves into the complex dynamics of empath/narcissist relationships, extending beyond just romantic entanglements to encompass family bonds as well.” The lyrics take listeners on a journey, shedding light on the toxic nature of these relationships and the damage they inflict. The band refers to these individuals as “Earth Demons,” a term that seems fitting for their destructive influence.
In terms of musical evolution, We Kill Cowboys is making a significant shift towards a harder sound, a transition that is evident in the new single. The track features metal beats, fuzzy bass lines, and a wall of guitars, all perfectly complemented by Alex’s distinctive husky vocals. Floris Le Roux, who handled tracking, mixing, and mastering for the single, has played a pivotal role in capturing their evolving sound. The collaboration with Le Roux has not only influenced their music but also pushed the band into uncharted sonic territories, to the delight of their fans.
“Earth Demon” is just a taste of what’s to come from We Kill Cowboys, as it serves as the second single from their upcoming EP, “The Rage.” Fans can expect the EP to deliver a raw, unapologetic, and electrifying musical experience.
