The Brvtalist is proud to premier the latest single by Kansas City based trio Human Traffic. Available soon on their upcoming full length release, "Morgue Witch" is an amazing track that combines elements of post-industrial, suicide pop and drone into something melodic and very Brvtal. Their take on multiple genres is equally harmonious as it is destructive. I had the privilege of speaking to rehab, one of the group's members (along with vicki sixxx and lola rat), and found that he had the perfect explanation for the track:
the title of the track is "morgue witch" and it depicts the romanticized horror of being continuously haunted by yourself as an apparition in the eyes of someone else. as if your existence on this planet as a human wasn't good enough, you continue to remain invalid in an afterlife that you never wanted. forever doomed and desperate for some form of interpersonal recognition. there is a void but it cannot be filled. you are tenuous and transparent. a fragile abnormality constantly in search of something that no longer exists. if you were to have found what you were looking for, would you even know what to do with it?
This upcoming album will be the group's first output since their previous and initial effort, "digital ecstasy", which was self-released last year. The trio will be heading out on tour this summer to support the record and many had the privilege of seeing them their last time around in Los Angeles and had excellent things to say. For now, you can catch Human Traffic curating some incredible shows at their night "Detox" in Kansas City which is held at Negative Space. The photos below are from their latest show there.
