Saint Agnes have some epic momentum going on at the moment. They’re recently played a :London headline show, had a great set over at Takedown Festival in Portsmouth and they’re gearing up to tour with Monster Magnet before heading over to 2000trees.
What about right now though? They’ve dropped ‘Animal’ which is the second single off their second record.
“Animal is about waving your freak flag high, it’s about being who you authentically are inside and revelling in it,” says singer Kitty A. Austen. “It’s a song for the misfits who boldly walk a different path with pride.”
Check out ‘Animal’ below.
The album was written following the unexpected passing of Kitty’s mother. It acted as a vessel for the knot of emotions she experienced, and gave her a point of focus.
“Creating this album gave me a reason to get to my feet at a time when I really wasn’t sure if I could,” Kitty explains. “I’ve tried to put everything I’ve been feeling into it, all the pain, the rage, the grief, even the unexpected moments of beauty and belief.
“I hope it makes you feel less alone. I hope it makes you feel bigger, badder and stronger. We might be damaged but that doesn’t mean we’re worthless. This is a record for the defeated, the crushed. We might be broken but that doesn’t mean we’re not whole. Bloodsuckers forever, Saint Agnes forever.”
