Video: Shebeen Queen-Take Him Away

Shebeen Queen is a Sydney post-punk project that make a Dickinson novel sound like a stroll through a cartoon wonderland. Their noise is crossed somewhere Robert Smith being fed through a chainsaw, and pure nihilism incinerating one’s soul. On ‘Take Him Away’ the sound becomes very apparent and horrifyingly looming, like a Savages or Babes In Toyland track slowed down to a grinding halt. The accompanying video works to distorting, unnerving advantage as well, glorifying the macabre performance of the song. Fucking great stuff.
