Following the release of their latest EP, Razzle Dazzle at the end of last month, Blackbird Hill hopped on their virtual horses and tracked down South African-based director and producer, Steven “Joff” Carter to create this saucy sci-fi western.
Blackbird Hill do grit and growl with French finesse as the duo command the distortion overdrive pedal that is so synonymous with rock ‘n roll, having been influenced by back-in-the-day blues and only the best modern rock groups along the lines of Queens Of the Stone Age, The Raconteurs, and Royal Blood.
As a cowboy traveller character settles in for the night after a bowl of sloppy grub, his slumber is interrupted by a UFO smashing into earth.
Ready to draw, a seductive extra-terrestrial surfaces from the wreckage and swiftly hypnotises the cowboy through a sultry dance-off showdown. The cowboy’s heart is weakened as the alien steals a make-out session of death.
The western cinematographic style stirs in perfectly with the raw, garage-rock sound and goes down like a smooth whisky. Get ready to lap this track up.
