Devoid of any detailed information apart from where they come from, The Blue Mountain natives Castratii are known more of a musical collective rather than a group or band. Names of founding members are only hearsay and much of the mystery that comes with their hidden identities is well and truly consolidated into their dark, sprawling, gloomy-gaze sound.
‘Kingdom’ is the first single of their debut record titled Eora, it’s a definitive industrial sound, Liela Moss provides vocals that resonates with the likes Austra and a much darker Bjork. The clip to ‘Kingdom’ was directed by Sue-Ling Braun, shot in an attic and a MacBook Pro was used to project the lines, check out the interview with her on Portable about the clip for an interesting read.
You can grab a free download of ‘Kingdom’ below. I’m definitely going to be hanging around for this release. Eora is out in June.
