"Golden Apple" Official Video by Spottiswoode and His Enemies - "A Dark Seduction"
"Golden Apple" by Spottiswoode and His Enemies is a song full of dark shadows and a sense of mystery. The ambiance floats on an accordion bed and a super catchy guitar riff that is counter played by an equally cool base line and an almost nonchalant drum pattern. The musical tone that might be described as an almost drug hazey Doors-ish sound meets hippie beach goth is fully cemented by the provocative lyrics sung by Spottiswoode with that gorgeous voice that I first wrote about a couple of years ago (see here).
"Feel the moon running through your blood... soon, soon we'll be free my love" is but one line that suggests something unearthly going on or not. Other lines hint at a lover's rendezvous or a grand escape from something nefarious or maybe even a more morbid final grand escape . The Official video feeling retro and a bit psychedelic was shot at St. John's Lutheran Church in Greenwich Village with British Council Archive footage rolling in the background. "Golden Apple" is an engaging dark seduction. Loving this sound.
Golden Apple is from this year's (2014) English Dream Album
