Although there are some Carla Harvey rough vocals in the song, the track is one of the band’s more melodic and radio ready as a whole. Harvey and Heidi Shepherd sing about the intoxicating and all engulfing nature of fiery passion in “Headspin” and the band gives it a pretty sexed up video that can be seen above.
“Miss Jessa Rhodes & Xander Corvus nailed it in our new video ‘Headspin,'” say the band via their Facebook page, referring to the two actors playing the central characters in the storyline for the clip. The video centers on a man who enters the virtual reality world, getting seduced and taken in by his dream girl … that is until regular life comes knocking.
The video clip falls in line with the overall themes of Lililth. “When we were thinking of titles for our album, we wanted to find something that embodied sensuality, lust, danger and power. We kept going back to Lilith. We researched Lilith and her origins in different cultures and forms and knew that this figure, once feared but now a beautiful, symbolic middle finger to repression, would be a perfect representation of our album,” said Harvey upon the announcement of the disc. “With this album we dove in fully and drowned ourselves in emotion, sexuality and even turmoil, and let the two headed beast we created has emerged even stronger.”
Shepherd added, “Historically, Lilith has become demonized as a representation of promiscuity and disobedience. We, however, see her as a positive figure. A symbol of autonomy, sexual equality and full control over your own destiny. Lilith is the supreme representation of the left-hand path woman: independent, having discarded the patriarchal yoke, and not afraid to use all the tools available to her, including her sexuality, to gain the most out of existence. The eels in the cover art represent sleek symbolism of new beginnings and adventure. With this album we have musically taken a leap through old boundaries and landed in new oceans. It is said that a the dream or visions of eels is confirmation that the path we currently lead is the right one. In this new chapter of Butcher Babies, we welcome evolution as we bare ourselves with Lilith.”
As stated, “Headspin” is available on the band’s newly released Lilith album. You can pick up the disc via Amazon and iTunes. The group is currently on tour with Hollywood Undead and dates can be found here.
