The Witch and the Robot - Hetero / Giants' Graves (MP3)
Hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed debut LP ‘On Safari’, comes TWATr’s first single - brand new track ‘Hetero’, backed with album and live favourite ‘Giant’s Graves’. Here’s TWATr's Sam (aka Venice) to explain what ‘Hetero’ is on about;
"In 1518, Frau Troffea began to dance fervently in a street in Strasbourg. This lasted somewhere between four to six days. Within a week, 34 others had joined, and within a month, there were around 400 dancers. Most of these people eventually died from heart attack, stroke, or exhaustion...
In Ambleside there is a late night disco called Sportsmans Inn, every small town has one, the type of nightclub where big men stare at women while listening to Vega Bus or Dario G, totally Hetero..."
But that's not all. That other nicely good band of Cumbrian instrumentists (British Sea Power) are friends and fans of The Witch And The Robot and for this release, BSP’s Martin Noble provides a stunning, apocolyptic re-working of 'Hetero' which we can't get enough of. Massive. Check our live section for details of an upcoming TWATr micro-tour .
