ALL THE QUEEN`S HORSES RELEASE DEBUT 2-TRACK SINGLE “RAISED BY WOLVES” & “THE IDES OF MARCH” FROM THE UPCOMING DEBUT ALBUM “THE DARK BELOW & THE ISLE OF DOGS”, TO BE RELEASED IN SEPTEMBER 2021.
“RAISED BY WOLVES” powerful, sparsely and modern instrumented between folktronica and minimalistic cinematic rock. With modern beats and filmic sound design, a groovy bass, guitar feedbacks and an intense sawing cello, that strokes the mood even deeper.
VIDEO INFO – RAISED BY WOLVES:
The dark cobblestones, tunnels, side streets and riverbanks of Dublin offered the ideal dark backdrop for All The Queen’s Horses first single Raised by Wolves. The video concept was simple, everyone has to carry their own baggage in life and it is not something that you can let go of, no matter what you do. It follows a protagonist and heroine and the breakdown in mechanics of their relationship. The film is shot in black and white. The video was inspired by the 1962 Orson Welles movie adaption of Kafka`s book “The Trial”.
The artist about RAISED BY WOLVES: The song tells the story of a person who experiences constant misfortune in life (I live in fire and there’s no symmetry and there’s no winning here) and of the people who should never have abandoned him. Their indifference towards him (when the storms came I’d stay out in the snow) and his incomprehension of how they can accept this so easily (I held on to Jerusalem with my arrow and my bow). This man is on a warpath against all those who have abandoned him, but loses the strength to continue fighting them (and I will follow you and I will follow them) and his world begins to come apart at the seams. Embittered by his years of neglect, he believes that the misfortune and suffering of others is not equal to his (their virgin chests swim near and there’s no fitting in). The protagonist is portrayed as caustic, hostile and argumentative. His world collapses and he is poison to those around him.
