The juxtaposition of the ominous vocal and uplifting production is something to marvel at too.
Everything about this is enthralling, from start to finish this track creates high scale emotion, compelling lyrics, uplifting production and a haunting vocal that is simply captivating. Prepare for a sensational album to come out February 22nd.
“Black House is about admitting to someone that you don’t have it in you to love them back. The title comes from a story my uncle told me about a neighbor who painted his house black and the neighborhood that formed a committee to make him paint his house back to a normal colour.” – Funeral Advantage
