There are certain periods of everyone’s life, when he/she just feels vulnerable, fragile if you prefer. Forgive me for sounding too personal; But this is what music should be for: Oust the negative energy, and make us feel better; Relieved in a way.
‘Beast Of Birkenshaw‘ by Syvdoh, is one of those track-sedatives, that came the absolutely right time in my life. So this exclusive is more than a premiere, more than just a solid track. Thank you Syvdoh.
The song features guest vocals by Denise Mina, winner of the McIlvanney Prize for Scottish crime book of the year 2017 (for The Long Drop, http://www.denisemina.com/), and Sylvia Hector (The Paperback Throne), and is taken off ‘Syvdoh II‘ out on Iffy Folk Records.
Check out the minimal video and this exceptionally beautiful track.
Syvdoh is the brainchild of former Sea Kings Brian Canning and Ralph Hector (BBC 6Music, Radio Scotland, Louder Than War, Vive Le Rock) who’ve collaborated, written and produced Syvdoh I & II between Glasgow and Monmouth in South Wales
Syvdoh II is pop sounds mixed with political and social comment. Shades of the big guns run throughout; Bowie, Prince and Springsteen, but with a more contemporary twist ofSleaford Mods meeting Field Music.
Syvdoh II is packed to the rafters with big concepts; gang culture, heaven, death, mental health, Leveson, the press, the void, mind control, serial killers, homophobia, death camps, slave ships, psychics, Hiroshima… so in short a right barrel of laughs.
