Voodoo Beach releases new single and music video from »Wonderful Life« album and announces December tour dates!
“»Wonderful Life« presents a beautiful mix of eerie and dreamy. Its shoegazey ghostly tone and note choices throughout the beginning feel like the gothy ’80s party you always wanted to go to. An atmosphere that feels right out of a Stephen King film adaptation intro it’s hard not to feel the fall vibes easing in as you listen.” – Everything Is Noise

The band comments: “»Wonderful Life« is nothing short of a story about the end of the world. Angelic in nature, Heike and our featured guest John Moods bid farewell and mourn what is destined for destruction – or are they devils reveling in the destruction? Who are we to judge? Even though the song speaks of human incapability to recognize and avert the impending collapse in time, it never intends to wag the moral finger, but rather offers understanding and solace in the face of catastrophe. It is precisely this ambivalence that prompted us to name the album after this song. Because on »Wonderful Life« you can find both sides of the coin – the abyssal, tragic, and agonizing, as well as hope, grace, and a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Being two years in the making, »Wonderful Life« is a natural extension of the group’s signature blend of indie rock, jangle pop and neo-psychedelia, while the extended time of writing and recording allowed the band to add an inspiring degree of depth to their sound. They say the devil is in the details, but voodoo is in the constant war drums that resonate in the night sky. The resolution of Voodoo Beach carries through in every vibration of their music and these tracks are a testament to their lasting creativity and collaboration. »Wonderful Life« is a bildungsroman of sorts about a band that was meant to meet its untimely demise, but lucky for us all Voodoo Beach are still at it with this amazing record.
