"By The Throat" by Danish indie rockers The Great Dictators

By The Throat is the new single by Danish indie rockers The Great Dictators with a guest appearance by living legend / cult icon and front man in the experimental rock band Xiu Xiu, Jamie Stewart. The track is drenching in a sad atmosphere. There is a shuffling feel of rock on gravel like a dead man walking. The synth swells, vacuous guitar sounds that some times sounds like cries or violin, meandering pretty piano, and almost demonic growls of some sort and Dragut Lugalzagosi reticent tortured vocal performance:  “My love, I’m painfully yours”... all lending to the dark sadcore avant garde feel. Grizzly Bear meets Nick Cave meets David Lynch.

The Great Dictators: 

“Miraculously we came in touch with our huge idol, Jamie Stewart. He asked if he could add some synths and background noise to ‘By The Throat’. We told him to go nuts. Btw we’re still insanely starstruck.”
