Rage that lasts a thousand years will soon be gone, as Freddie Mercury once noted. This was back in the 80s and the rage is still there (not that any of it should be blamed on Mr. Mercury, mind).
The range (and the rage) of voices being included in the conversation shifted quite a bit since with both women increasingly adding theirs to the discussion. Last month we premiered Harm by Elizabeth Joan Kelly, haunting ode to a dying planet which depicted a sense of resignation / defeat (aka inverted anger, as all grief is).
Now comes a turn of Elisa Flynn, Brooklyn-based indie/alt-rock musician with her first electronic piece entitled “Maelstrom”. Its a bit hard to parse the source of anger/rage in this case due to lack of a lyric sheet, but make no mistake – it is an angry, beat-driven track with vocals resembling those of Zola Jesus.
Maelstrom EP is out on Oct. 25
