Mimi Barks has just released a brand-new single, BANSHEE, and it adds a compelling new flavour to her brilliant brand of doom trap.

Clearly a vulnerable new effort, Mimi reveals in a poetic statement about BANSHEE: “A scream much like the sirens of death. A piercing voice prophesying your approaching demise. This ethereal noise is your death sentence. Coming at you like the ultrasonic squeaks of a bat.

“And when your heart stops beating and nobody will be there for their last goodbye, you won’t find me. A broken childhood, a motherless orphan. You failed as a parent now I falter as a child. And you’ve chosen this path. Drowned every new promise in a bigger sip. A Wormgirl, unwanted. Birthed into hopelessness. With my torso open for a second and my heart on display. It was yours for the taking and you routed a stake through it.

“And I died a thousand times. Took refuge in my chrysalis where I licked up the taste of iron in the red; healed my wounds. Reincarnated into the Promised Land. Emerge into something bigger than I was destined for. The moth dies so the butterfly can exist.”

BANSHEE is taken from Mimi’s debut album THIS IS DOOM TRAP, which is due out on September 26 via Silent Cult.
