The White Swan (Kittie) Release Cover Of Tracy Bonham’s “Tell It To The Sky”

The White Swan, the band featuring Kittie’s Mercedes Lander, have premiered a lyric video for their cover of Tracy Bonham’s “Tell It To The Sky.” This track is from the group’s new EP “Nocturnal Transmission,“ which will be released on September 18. Lander commented:

“I’ve always thought that ‘Tell It To The Sky‘ was a fantastically well-written song. I always try to really think outside the box when it comes to choosing covers and I tend to pick songs that you wouldn’t expect a band like The White Swan to cover. Tracy Bonham‘s ‘The Burdens Of Being Upright‘ was released the same year I started playing drums and started my first band and this was my favorite song from that record when it was released. I did my best to capture the soaring vocal melodies and we added some layered EBow for the verses which creates a bit of a darker vibe from the original.”

The White Swan (Kittie) Premiere “In Love And Ritual” Video

The White Swan, the band featuring Kittie’s Mercedes Lander, have premiered a new video for their new song “In Love And Ritual.” This track is from the group’s new EP “Nocturnal Transmission,“ which will be released on September 18. In addition to “In Love And Ritual,” that effort will also come with the title track, “Purple,” and a cover of Tracy Bonham’s “Tell It to the Sky.” Lander commented:

“‘In Love And Ritual‘ is about finding the person that completes you and the journey of realizing how having that person in your life teaches us to become brand new, kind of like a rebirth of feeling and emotional connection. I really wanted to create space with this song, keeping the roller coaster of dynamics in the forefront with a touch of chaos running in the background. Having the lyrics and melody build with the music and really complement each other.”

The White Swan (Kittie) Premiere New Song “Touch Taste Destroy”

The White Swan, the band featuring Kittie’s Mercedes Lander, have premiered a new song titled “Touch Taste Destroy,“ via Decibel. This is the title track of the group’s new EP, which is set to be released on September 7.

Lander commented:

“‘Touch Taste Destroy‘ is about experiencing real romantic love for the first time. The kind of love that completely consumes you and ruins any idea of what you thought real love was like. The main riff came together very easily for me and was written on an Alvarez baritone acoustic on my couch in about 5 minutes.

We had the middle part tucked away in our bank of riffs and it fit very well with the main bit of music. Lyrically, the song is quite sappy, which is an underlying theme with The White Swan in general, but I really wanted to keep the verses very dark sounding, to contrast the lyrical content, and the choruses a bit more intense but in the same dark vein as the verses.

I felt like TTD perfectly describes the EP’s theme. Not only is it one of my favorite songs but it speaks for the content of all three songs on the EP.”
