Back with more from their latest and 2nd album, EMPiRE take things down to the forest. There, the girls spout branching appendages from their fontanelle. With their dance soundtrack, the girls give a dance performance to the creatures of the night of the wooded lands. In a particularly symbolic moment, EMPiRE encounters a trap hidden amidst the duff. As the girls set it off with a stick, I start to wonder about the nature of the trap. Is it the idol trap? Does EMPiRE refuse to become ensnared in the machine that has made and broken so many?
The latest EMPiRE release, the GREAT JOURNEY ALBUM, goes on sale December 18, 2019.
