Bonnie X Clyde unleash the bass in a fiery single on Ultra Records called “Curse.”
Drawing inspiration from their dark hip-hop and rock background, “Curse” sets the tone flawlessly. Beginning with an eerie pluck during the intro, Bonnie’s warm and angelic vocals tell the story of the curse. The curse builds into the relentless screeching drop that powers through the message. Hip-hop and trap percussion are used heavily throughout, and it complements Bonnie X Clyde’s style wonderfully.
“Inspiration for this song sonically came from our background of loving hip hop, rock, and electronic music,” state Bonnie X Clyde. “Heavy guitar riffs, lots of bass, lots of vocal chops/vocal manipulation. It was also inspired by the thriller movies we love to watch. We envisioned a girl in the backseat of a car while a man drives up to the top of a look out point with the the moon bright over a 50s style car but things go wrong when the man turns evil and the girl falls victim. She’s looking through the rearview mirror, back at herself wondering if being in this position is worth all of the emotions she is going through. The song is a journey of becoming aware of the energy you want to have around you. It’s dark but uplifting, and intense but sultry.”
Is it really a curse if it brings you joy and pleasure?
