Los Angeles, CA’s The Bedroom Witch has released her third single from the soon upcoming album “A Place Of Hurt” due out Friday, November 4th, a co release between Psychic Eye Records and Ratskin Records November 4th (happens to be the next #BandcampFriday as far as we can tell as well). The track is titled “Venus” and it’s a glistening, funky, powerful tale told through big, brooding percussion, funk laden bass synths, and lush, etheareal synths and strings dancing into the dark purple glow of the night.
The artists monumental singing voice leaks in and completes her complex and unique sound palette, and what a glowing palette it is. Her musical brush strokes paint the perfect melancholic fall sonic offering of intense serenity, reflection love, loss and regeneration.
Stylistically “Venus” pulls from the likes of dark, atmospheric synth vibes of later John Carpenter, Boy Harsher, Spellling and Profligate while casting layers of magical vocal layerings across the already flawless electronic productions, and although we can hear spats of these artists in her work The Bedroom Witch has created a nuanced sound all her own, which pulses throughout the four minutes of “Venus”.

Huge orchestral plucks, thumping electro percussion, swinging, spinning synth lines and her beautifully refined orchestral voice gel together to create a foggy and futuristic back drop for The Bedroom Witch’s voice to tell all. If “Venus” is a tae of whats to come for the full album release of “A Place Of Hurt”, rest assured it’ll stay stuck on repeat for the rest of 2022 and well into 2032 for us. Listen to “Venus” exclusively here, and make sure to preorder the album here (Psychic Eye) and here (Ratskin Records) before it’s release on November 4th,2022.
