Seattle five-piece, Society of the Silver Cross, have announced the release of their debut LP, 1 Verse. The record will be out June 28th of this year on all DSPs, as well as available on CD and vinyl. They return now with a brand new single, titled “Kali Om.”
“Kali Om” is a call for awakening to the universality of all people and things, in that state we become aware of our true self and are free. Kali represents the great redeemer, an aspect of divinity that relentlessly cuts through ignorance and leads to liberation, and Om being the universal sound of consciousness in all matter. The sound and textures of the song are dark and crashing while carried by an uplifting and feminine grace. It plays with the duality of darkness and beauty in the quest for meaning. Instrumentally it features the haunting tones of the shahi baaja (Indian autoharp), harmonium, 12 string guitar, dilruba (bowed Indian instrument), clavinet, B3 organ, synthesizers and drums.
