Today, the mysterious NYC artist Cult Of Venus shares their newest single “Time Capsule,” a revolution-minded reflection on the inescapable cycles of violence and the dimming horizons of peace, as well as on how one finds hope, empathy, and motivation amidst the inundation of media imagery and propagandist messaging.
Combining the desperation of prime PJ Harvey, the scorched-earth polemic of Savages, and electronic flourishes reminiscent of ANOHNI, “Time Capsule” seethes with urgency — a fitting and affecting commentary on violent times and rising up against one’s own apathy and desensitization. Listen to the studio version, mixed by Geoff Swann (Grimes, Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek) here.
As Line Of Best Fit explains: “Cultivating a wave of underground excitement and intrigue stemming from their Chapel Bar and Gospel NYC shows, Cult of Venus have all the tools and undoubted musical prowess to develop into one of the most intriguing outfits of this year.”
Cult Of Venus is an artist and activist whose music illustrates and illuminates the dystopian world we live in today, challenging the patriarchy and resonating with the divine feminine. Her on-the-ground work includes support for incarcerated women and environmental protest movements.
“Time Capsule” follows Cult Of Venus’s debut single “Mountains,” which Line Of Best Fit described as “eerily similar to what one would expect from a collaboration between Chvrches Lauren Maybury and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver fame.” Listen to “Mountains” here.
