"Vampire" by Belaver is sultry, broken and feels like a punk baroque folk waltz with the dead. Perfect for your Halloween playlist

Vampire by Belaver, the solo project of NYC based experimental folk artist B.E. Godfrey sways like a baroque pop waltz. Love the dirty guitar, the horn that floats around like a spirit and Godfrey's on top of the mic vocals. There is a theatricality here. Elements of art rock, the aforementioned baroque pop, post punk and goth folk. It feels like The Dresden Dolls, the Killers and Queens of the Stone Age all smushed together into one bloody pulp. Perfect for Halloween parties everywhere. Vampire will be released in a collection of Belaver songs produced by Texas country singer-songwriter Robert Ellis and ambient electronic musician Kelly Doyle.
