The Dark Country collective from Livadia city (Greece), shares its new record release entitled “Snake oil & Lullabies”. It is a four track EP that each song is represented by a tarot card on the cover artwork and tells a dark story. The EP will be available digitally from 20/7/23 and you can find it on the band’s Bandcamp page as well as on every known music platform.
Come, sit around the fire … the show begins!
Snake oil & Lullabies:
- The Circus
- Slow Trains Are Never Late
- Cardinal Sin
- The Town
(a campfire story)
…The hoary oracle spread the cards on the old oak table. “Pick four” she whispered, but her voice sounded deep and felt like touching my innards. I chose. She turned them around. Under the candlelight her face looked broken and scary, but it became otherworldly at the sight of the tarots. “The Circus”, “The Train”, “The Sin”, “The City”. A voice as if taken out of the darkness broke the silence: “Snake oil & Lullabies”…
