We've been loving everything Charming Disaster have been doing. Their gothic Americana cabaret sound is pretty much perfect around these parts. On their latest single, "Ouroboros," they stick with what works, but change it up just enough to surprise us. "Ouroboros" starts off like a Charming Disaster sonic template. It's dark and moody, and you can just sense the enthusiasm coming from Ellia Baker and Jeff Morris as they prepare to bring us their new story. But, in a surprise twist, this new song rocks. It's still a gothic cabaret song, but the addition of bass and drums adds a rock element not typically seen with this duo. It's a fun little dabble into a new sound.
In a Facebook post, Charming Disaster explain the new song:
"The ouroboros is the mythological snake that swallows its tail, evoking infinity, eternal return, cycles of reinvention and rebirth. This song is inspired by esoteric and mystic arts, by the wonders of the natural world, and by the bravery of those who risk everything to become their true selves."
