Susanna & the Brotherhood does their magic on top of a spooky drone made of sampled piano chords. There’s church bells on a cassette, squeaky accordion and heavy processed voices claiming ecstasy is achievable if only we follow the goddess of darkness. Is it the witching hour or a summoning of some sorts.
Highly inspired by the surreal in Hieronymus Bosch’s art; Susanna has made a cycle of songs which underlines the strange and experimental alongside the beautiful for her upcoming album ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’.
