In the midst of the lead up to Holy Wars‘ full-length Mother Father, a new track titled “Cruel World” has emerged from the production process to tease us even further into a tailspin. Kat Leon’s vocals – alluring as always – ensnare you as they walk a fine line between intensely dark and multifaceted, as she repeats “Oh, it’s a cruel world, it’s a cruel world” over crashing drums and heavy, layered guitars. The track feels like the living representation of heavy chains, the message dragging you down slightly while simultaneously challenging you to make the most of this “Cruel World”.
