Cannibal Fae Of Waking Dream – Surrey Muse

Once, faeries perched upon a tree enjoying the weather when humans came to watch. The Fae decided to play a prank, and so they began to feast on one another engaging in faux acts of cannibalism. Disgusted, the humans left. The faeries continued as before, this time, singing sweet songs of beauty. Thus the Cannibal Fae Of Waking Dream.’

Cannibal Fae Of Waking Dream is a gothic music group that began in 2016 in New York’s borough of Queens. Their latest releases include a track and EP Psychward Zombie, the track Catharsis; a track with artist Feral Confetti, and, another with the Odd Mother. Some of their influencers are Switchblade Symphony, Sisters Of Mercy, Android Lust, and the bands such as Type O Negative, Rasputina, Emilie Autumn and Nine Inch Nails. Aside from music, the group members like to paint, make dolls, and fix miscellaneous instruments. The group was founded by Katherine Wakefield (guitar/synth, composer/producer) and Eurithia Tachinidae (Keyboardist/Composer, writer), most recently, Reggie Smith joined as a rhythm guitarist. Waking Dream will be performing at the Delancey soon.

Lend Me Your Underbelly – Surrey Muse

‘Lend me your underbelly’ is the alias of Christian Berends, a musician and artist based in the Netherlands who ‘tries to create mesmerizing and surreal music where time is dilated’. Previously a member of the black metal band Salacious Gods, Christian began to explore ‘the dreamy and psychedelic side of music’ since 2011. Fueled by improvisation, nature and spiritual grounding, his experimental field recordings awash through guitar, ‘speaking in the language of the ancients, blowing as a still storm hanging in defiance to gravity itself’. Christian uses Guitar and a variety of other instruments as well as loopers and vocals ‘to explore the edges of inner musical perceptions.’
