Australia's Twelve Foot Ninja and Ukraine's Jinjer have played together many times and developed a friendship that now has taken the form of a musical collaboration. The joint effort is "Over and Out," a Faith No More-esque crooner off the Aussie's upcoming album, Vengeance (due out October 15th), and it features Jinjer's powerhouse vocalist Tatiana Shmayluk dueting with Twelve Foot Ninja's Kin Etik about "the complicated relationship we have with our own mortality and how death can seem like the arms of a lover beckoning us to an early demise," as the band have described the song's theme. Check it out above.
"We wanted someone who could represent the lyric 'the devil in my blood' – both the darkness and the light," Twelve Foot Ninja commented in a group statement. "Tatiana embodies what we needed for this track perfectly so asking her to feature on it was a no brainer. Her band Jinjer and Twelve Foot Ninja have played together a number of times and we instantly connected the first time we met in the Ukraine capital Kyiv. We've since tom to respect Tatiana as a musician and as a human so we're stoked she's agreed to jump on this track."
Shmayluk added, "When the TFN guys asked me to feature on one of their new tracks, I immediately said yes without even hearing it! The song and video were a lot of fun and very different from anything I've done with Jinjer ... it's a great pleasure to be an honorary member of the Twelve Foot Ninja clan now!"
