Bodega have unveiled a new song entitled Knife On The Platter which is due to feature on their forthcoming mini-album Shiny New Model.
“Knife on the Platter is a narrative song,” explains Ben Hozie. “I was imagining a top notch Gena Rowlands-esque actress who is cast in a mediocre gothic who nonetheless elevates the script’s schlocky material through her absolute commitment to authentically live each moment of the play.”
“She performs as if the gods are watching – she ‘acts’ as if each gesture will be set in stone for the future to see. That’s a show business trick – when performing imagine your heroes are in the room. You will no longer mess around.”
“Twice in the song Zeus responds via the lightning striking from Madison’s guitar. That’s the thing: even when you are totally alone and lost – someone is (or will always be) watching your actions. Choose wisely.”
Shiny New Model is out on October 11th, following last year’s full length debut Endless Scroll.
