His music is inspired by intense collaborative work, an extension of the mourning ritual a crestfallen serpentwithfeet first created to grieve heartbreak. Serpentwithfeet is sharing his new single co-produced with Clams Casino, Seedless which pokes fun at serpentwithfeet’s overbearing presence in the lives of partners. He tinkers with the extremes of his ideals to illustrate the ways in which past partners have felt oppressed by his need.
A once whimsical and mechanical, soil traverses the depths of human emotion in search of love. He cites influences as varied as lullabies, an affinity for pungent body odour, his doll collection, and his mother’s love of traditional hymns. soil conjures his early fascinations with Brandy and Björk as easily as it references the pageantry of anthemic compositions by Antonin Dvorak and the ecstatic praise of the black church. Serpentwithfeet will begin his tour in support of soil later this month on the West Coast. This is a must-see live show as witnessed at the recent “Both Moons” performance for Red Bull Music Festival New York and detailed by Jezebel. After the run of headline dates, serpentwithfeet will play select shows at Eaux Claires, BBC Proms, Treasure Island Music Festival, Afropunk Festival and more.
