BIG|BRAVE have released a new song!
Titled the fable of subjugation, it is the latest track to be taken from the heavy music innovators’ upcoming album nature morte, which is scheduled to be released later this month via Thrill Jockey.
Speaking about the new song, singer/guitarist Robin Wattie states, “Lyrically, this was inspired by working on Leaving None But Small Birds with THE BODY. I kept the concept of nature morte while using the style of folk storytelling to help convey how much has not changed in the time of ‘man’ when it comes to men’s subconscious need or unprovoked desire or that ageless race to conquer and control any one thing and all things that may be of use and/or beneficial and/or prized or merely even kind of wanted etc., especially if one can accrue monetary wealth specifically at the detriment of the other.”
Listen to the fable of subjugation here:
nature morte follows the band’s 2021 collaboration with THE BODY, Leaving None But Small Birds, and the experiences of working that album informed Wattie‘s work on this record, creating stories that, like many folk tales, are at once specific and universal. It tackles the folly of hope, the consequences of trauma, often centres on the subjugation of femininity in all its pluralities. “It is violent and terrible. It is crushing and alarming. It is common and basic,” says Wattie. “It is catastrophic and disheartening.”
You can view the tracklist and artwork for the upcoming album below.
