FIERCE MILD + guests
Melbourne cinematic art rock group, Fierce Mild,
are touring the country this August/September in support of their
debut album, ‘Death’s Kingdom', releasing through Stargazed Records
‘Death’s Kingdom’ is a deeply introspective journey that connects people with their subconscious nature. The themes of the music and artwork are dark and disturbing. A catalyst for engaging with the darker elements of the human psyche - to acknowledge our propensity for destruction, but to come to terms with living with that reality in a meaningful and positive way. Mental illness (in particular, psychosis and schizophrenia) is a large subject in the music and artwork.
The work came together at an off-grid studio a few hours out of Melbourne with producer Nikita Miltiadou (Tash Sultana, Client Liaison, Crooked Colours) and involved experimentation with Trumpets, Violin, Didgeridoo and Glass bottle percussion. The result is a dense transcendental and ritualistic experience of interconnected compositions where central themes pop out and create revelatory moments.
A catalyst to engaging and discovering your psyche, and contemplating deeper and darker reasoning, Fierce Mild is a multi-media audio-visual band who have been described as “a synthesis of David Lynch & The Drones” (Reverb Magazine, 2017).
