Witch Rock DUO Unleash Their Inner Animal – New Single!

Enter the wicked and witchy world of Secrets of Fire!

Embark on a dark, enchanting journey into the deeper realms of mortal desire with SoF’s latest single Animal – a new track exploring the juxtaposing sides of the human psyche.

Following on from the last single ‘Runes’ (which received radio play across Europe), ‘Animal’ features reverberating guitars that chime and roar. Alluring lyrics flow from singer Astrid’s dark soulful voice as the melody seduces and bends. With its unconventional structure Animal tempts and teases. Quite soon things may begin to feel ‘all wicked’.

“Animal is about reaching in and touching those primal emotions. If we’re brave and enter, there’s a bewitching world of play to embrace” – Astrid, SoF

The music video for Animal may get hearts racing too. Filmed and edited by the duo, Astrid plays two different female characters in a fetish-themed, fantasy world.

SoF are Astrid (vocals) and River (guitars/production). Astrid’s name derives from her Nordic roots. Growing up in New Zealand and identifying as a witch from a young age, her mystical energy fuels the magic in SoF.

Ex-Londoner River, grew up watching guitar bands in the bars and clubs of Camden. A prolific songwriter, he records and sculpts the SoF sound – weaving goth-rock guitar tones, with melodic indie soundscapes.

The band’s influences include:

Foo Fighters, The Cure, Blondie, Nick Cave. As well as visual artists like Helmut Newton, David Lynch and Nick Zedd. SoF embrace a DIY ethic .They record all their own music, as well as shooting and editing their own photos and videos.

Imagine Britney meets Siouxsie Sioux fronting Pixies, and you’d be half way there!
