wo years after debut full-lenght Belladonna of Sadness, American singer-songwriter and musician Alexandra Savior announced the release of a new full-length. The Archer will be out via Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records. It was produced by Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby). Cohen states “It’s really a joy to work with someone who’s got such a strong sense of melody and also such a strong sense of what she wants stylistically.”
We already shared “Crying All The Time” and “Saving Grace”; title-track is a new excerpt. Describing her album’s title track and latest release, Savior says: “I wrote “The Archer” on Christmas Eve as a gift for a lover. At the time, my perception was that I was writing a song about how it feels to love someone, but now when I listen back to “The Archer”, I realize that I was writing an observation of a psychologically unhealthy relationship, from the perspective of someone who is unconsciously aware that she is being emotionally mistreated. In 2017, I filmed the Super 8 video for “The Archer” in Port Townsend, WA with artist Alexandria Saleem. The lighthouse and the grim December sky, represented to me the isolation I felt during that time in my relationship.”
