Kathryn Joseph shares the hauntingly beautiful track ‘the burning of us all’ – the second single off her forthcoming studio album for you who are the wronged, due for release 22 April via Best & Fairest / Rock Action.
Anger sears on ‘the burning of us all’, as Kathryn narrates the violation and abuse she has observed in a quiet yet impassioned reckoning: “The way they gaslit, swallowed it whole…The way they tried to make them hate the ones they loved”.
The new single is accompanied by a video directed by Harry Clark, featuring Jessie Roberts-Smith from the Scottish Dance Theatre Group.
for you who are the wronged is the much anticipated follow-up to 2018’s from when i wake the want is, and her 2014 debut bones you have thrown me and blood i’ve spilled, which won 2015’s Scottish Album of the Year award. If from when i wake… was written for love to return, this is where she fights tooth and claw to protect it. And though her sparrow-boned musical structures are as slight and sparse framed as their singer – they burn with a fearsome new certainty.
for you who are the wronged is set for release April 22 via Best & Fairest / Rock Action. Pre-order the album here now.
