Engaging vocals of Kate Rivera, ‘The Bit, The Bridle’ engorges with hedonistic psyche revelry, tackled into a taunting iridescence, while attaining an essential dexterity of thought and nuance. It’s an understated palace of pleasure and it’ll get you there.
“‘The Bit, The Bridle’ is an apocalyptic dance-rock track reminiscent of The Strokes and Sunflower Bean with a chorus that makes you move,” said Demeter. “It’s about the voice of self-sabotage, turmoil, change, fear, and how we can turn to each other in vulnerability to overcome anything.”
Demeter is ‘word-rock’ from Brooklyn. Formally known as DOCTOR, Demeter was founded in Brooklyn, NY, by Kathleen (Kate) Rivera of Amor Prohibido, and Ian McNally of Cicero and the Orations in December 2017.
Completed with drummer John Mason, bassist Daniel Bloch, and keyboardist, vocalist Tim Bustle, Kate’s songs and poems are influenced by Patti Smith, Adrienne Lenker, Annie Clark, Julian Casablancas, and Hector Lavoe.
‘The Bit, The Bridle’ is the follow up to the single ‘Rosa’ and the second track of the upcoming EP ‘The Year of Goodbye’. The EP deals with figuring out one’s path through story, song, and poetry, while mixed-race, female, and living in tumultuous times.
