“genuinely one of the most mind-bending works of art that has graced our screens in 2017… think David Lynch-crossed with The Knife” – BlackBook
Bermuda Angels shares their new video “I Should Be Shot” via Atwood Magazine, who describes the video as “intoxicatingly dark.” You can check out the video here. The duo’s forthcoming self-titled debut LP is out October 20th.
Bermuda Angels are Bermuda Jones and Sophie Kadow. They fell in love and wrote an album together while living in the secret room of a music venue. Sophie spends most of her time in CA making songs and videos with Bermuda. The rest of her time is spent painting in NY, where she’s from. Bermuda Jones owns The East Room, a music venue in East Nashville. He primarily lives on his desert ranch in 29 Palms, CA where he works on music with Sophie and his other writing projects.
The recording process of the new album involved an imbalance of work, art, and love. Creating and fighting through constant chaos, moving from place to place, recording in multiple makeshift studios in 1 music venue, 1 taxidermy/oddities shop, 2 basements, 1 garage, 1 cabin, 1 adobe, and 2 houses- spanning 5 different states (CA, NY, TN, WV, ME.)
“The album was partly inspired by our surroundings and landscapes.,” explains Bermuda “We explored the extremes of the weather spectrum in the US and spent a winter in Maine on Mount Desert Island surrounded by snow and windstorms and freezing cold, working on our sound. A few months later, we spent our summer in an adobe in the desert in Joshua Tree, CA in incredible heat, working on our sound some more. You could literally fry an egg on a rock outside.
We were also inspired by the excitement and turmoil of forming our relationship and planning our future together. This seeped into the songs and overflowed throughout the album. Developing our trust was important throughout the process and it comes in many forms. Do I trust the other to follow through, to be honest to themselves and to me, to be faithful, to try his or her hardest, to create good music, to be understanding, to improve, to give support, and most importantly, to keep coming back. “
All songs on the album were written and recorded by Bermuda Jones and Sophie Kadow. The album was produced, engineered, and mixed by Bermuda Jones.
