Black Tape For A Blue Girl
The Cleft Serpent
CD in 4-panel digipak with 16 page booklet. First limited edition Digipak of 1'000 copies! NeoClassical darkwave with seductive mournful string, electronics & voice on 8 stories of loss, longing and doomed love. The Cleft Serpent is an elegant, heartfelt, and tragic torch song to humanity. A deeply personal tale cast on an almost cosmic scale, the album is a mature and fascinating musing on love, death and desire. The eight gothic neoclassical tracks evoke a sense of earthly entanglement, taking the listener through interconnected pieces charged with emotional honesty. A dark and beautiful work, it's the 13th album from Black Tape For A Blue Girl, and the first for vocalist Jon DeRosa and cellist Henrik Meierkord, joining the electronics of songwriter Sam Rosenthal.
