This is the first single off our album 'Stillborn Flowers'. It is an uptempo Darkwave tune with lyrics influenced by Emil Cioran's 'A Short History Of Decay' - melancholic and straightforward at the same time.
We're Rites of Hadda!
A London based anarcho-pagan-gothic-psychedelic witchpunk band, formed from a weekly jam session at a north London squat.
Drawing inspiration from our diverse tastes we play a blend of heads-down occult-tinged street punk rock, with a melodic, pop edge.
Behind The Blue Sky started as an attempt to write a song with a guitar hook reminiscent of The Jesus And Mary Chain, then it morphed into something a bit more inspired by Joy Division, now it probably sounds like neither... or both? The lyrics are about navigating a depression.
