Saint Agnes release A Beautiful Day for Murder

We like the whoosh of brooding energy that bursts forth from Saint Agnes’ latest track – A Beautiful Day for Murder.

This is a soaring pop gem with some unnerving lyrics for our unsettling times. Like one of those dark sixties pop gems such as one of my all time favourite’s Endless Sleep – it swoops you up with its delightful melody but twists you around with its troubling lyrics.

There are hints of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds even the Stranglers swirling around in this cocky pop blast. Dark psychedelia with a stomping pop heart is one way we came up to describe it. But it’s as catchy and atmospheric as hell which is the main thing. Nice video too which backs up the melodic melancholia of the song itself. We just wish Top of the Pops still existed so Saint Agnes could, with this song, blow off stage all the detritus clogging up the top of the charts right now.

Saint Agnes play tonight as part of the Artrockers New Blood Festival at Hoxton Bar and Kitchen and then at The Shacklewell Arms on January 18th with Dirty White Fever.
