The opening line of the new Foie Gras song "Psychic Sobriety" cuts right to the core of it from the moment the light turns green: "I'm a bad lay, but I want you to choke me until you love me."
Yet, while the lyrics bite deep, what really grabs the listener about the new cut is the driving, pulsing dark synth work that would fit perfectly between Yazoo's 1982 classic "Don't Go" and Depeche Mode's "Master and Servant" in a ripping DJ mix. "Psychic Sobriety" is culled from the self-described solo dronescapist's forthcoming Holy Hell EP due April 5th via Yellow Year Records (you can cop yours here).
The track comes paired with a lighthearted music video, directed by Angel Ceballos, which depicts the artist as a vampire pageant winner on a date that ends in tragedy and triumph again and again. A clip that must be seen to be believed, it is totally fun and provides an excellent accompaniment to the crackin' goth-pop gem. Check out both the song and visual above for the first time. You can watch Foie Gras' more somber but equally gripping video for "Red Moon" below.
