Amen Dunes - Song To The Siren


New York-based Amen Dunes has announced news of a companion EP to follow the release of his previous record Love, which came out earlier this year via Sacred Bones.

Cowboy Worship is the forthcoming record attempting to give life to some of the music that played a crucial part to the creation of Love. It’s set for release on Jan 19th and new song and Far Out’s Track of the Day ‘Song To The Siren’ is the first single released.

Speaking about new track, Damon McMahon aka. Amen Dunes went on to say “I tried this one solo and it didn’t feel right.  Thankfully Ben lived upstairs and was up for playing.  He came down and we didn’t have to say much to each other, which was a sign it would work.  There isn’t much talking in Amen Dunes; things either flow naturally or not at all.

This track in particular, a This Mortal Coil cover of a Tim Buckley cover, is a perfect metaphor for Amen Dunes.  Tim Buckley heart within a This Mortal Coil body, which could be substituted with a Bob Dylan heart within a Throbbing Gristle body, or any similar pairing, inverted, reversed or flipped, any which way.  Solid Ying Yang.”
