YUNYU - Twisted Tales - Episode 2 - Bluebeard
Bluebeard is the second single from Twisted Tales.
Yunyu’s version of this tale is a dark and chilling rendition of the exploits of real life Bluebeards who use religion to justify their sexual abuse of women and children. Offering a musical lifeline to her characters, Yunyu used SOS Morse code as a base for the track. Bluebeard is post-modern rock meeting with Kate Bush-esque vocals, and reaches a violent crescendo of electrifying guitar. Short, sharp verses repeat in rhythmic sequence while the band keeps up with the multiple changes in time signatures.
I love the way the video makes use of the drawing-on-sand imagery.
