Kirlian Camera reveal the video clip ‘Il Tempo Profondo (Radio Signal Version)’ as the first single taken from the forthcoming new double album “Radio Signals for the Dying”. The release date of “Radio Signals for the Dying” has been scheduled to February 23, 2024.
Kirlian Camera are an ever churning maelstrom of creativity and musical innovation. Their inspirational power is both, destructive when it comes to limitations of genre, style, and conventions as well as constructive for example regarding building a new sonic architecture on the ruins of the old. The Italians latest masterpiece, “Radio Signals for the Dying”, is no exception as a new artistic high-watermark. On the surface, Kirlian Camera continue on the dark musical path they chose to follow on their previous double album “Cold Pills (Scarlet Gate of Toxic Daybreak)” (2021).
It speaks volumes about the Italian electro-provocateurs’ extreme level of energy that the band is able to follow up such a massive work with another powerful double full-length. Yet “Radio Signals for the Dying” is anything but a mere repeat of its glorious predecessor. Instead Kirlian Camera subtly change their sound design by a thousand smart details, delightful tricks, grand effects, unexpected twists, digressions, and clever variations of existing themes.
For many decades, Kirlian Camera have inhabited and continue to dwell in a realm of multi-layered constructions and occult transcendence as well as subversive content that has always been at the core of their art. In the past, their unapologetic at times outrageous delight to provoke and to hold a truth-telling mirror to the world has repeatedly sparked controversy. The Italians are electronic shamans, rock mystics, sonic revolutionaries, and high priests of the free arts that are again reborn as a musical phoenix in creative fire.
Kirlian Camera comment: “One could say that ‘deep time’ is the temporal immensity in which mankind is immersed in its relationship with Earth and geological phenomena”, vocalist extraordinaire Elena Alice Fossi explains. “Hence our desire to bring this concept to music, focusing on liberation from the wheel-of-becoming, on which hatred, craving, and delusion are kept alive by mankind’s selfish desire. We embrace the idea to get as far away as possible from the lower dimension, which is our current 3-dimensional system, in an attempt to encounter subtle bodies on the way. Our video occasionally shows some extramodal figures that are elementary indications of space-time distortion. This is just a crutch, another way of saying that there is dilation, shrinkage, and pseudo-distortion of space-time.”
