Gazelle Twin has announced her new LP, Black Dog, out October 27th, along with her signing to Invada Records. Elizabeth Bernholz, the composer, producer, singer, and visual artist behind the project, reveals her face for the first time, dropping the masked characters used in previous releases. Black Dog, as the press release describes, “is an album about confronting fear, and the expectation that the things that lurked in the darkness when you were a child will disappear as you become an adult.”
The album news is accompanied by the sinister and seductive title track, whose lyrical rhythms are inspired by the children’s books Bernholz reads to her children. The title comes from a childhood figure, she explains, “a small black dog’s shadow, blacker than black, moving by my bedside – not terrifying but lingering. Looping. Tailing. Restless. Keeping me awake”.
‘Black Dog’ is offered with an accompanying video directed by John Minton, and you can watch it below.
