Bitch is thrilled to announce her new full-length album In Us We Trust, an indie-electro rock collaboration with Billie Jo (Alligator) fused together by electric violin & chaotic energy. Having learned classical violin at the age of 4, Bitch studied fiddling with Andrew Bird and expanded her musical experimentation horizons. She released her first solo record Make This/Break This with legendary label Kill Rock Stars, and will release In Us We Trust produced by Roger Paul Mason July 16 on her own Short Story Records.
With a shift in location came a shift in sound. Bitch left behind the busy city landscape to record in a secluded log cabin in Michigan. Such serenity bred the courage to write the way she performs, as an extrovert. Sonically, In Us We Trust breathes the energy of the city; the simultaneous hope and despair, the bitter edge, humor and power of human gathering.
“Ibuprofen” is an anthemic break-up song featuring a biting rap chorus and distorted vocal layers. Lyrically moody & contradictive “O, Packaging” reveals a lighter side with lush choruses and twinkling xylophone while the soulful strings change things up on growling bluesy number “Love Was A River”. Title track “In Us We Trust” is a bass-driven synth heavy track about self-reflection and unity. Download the “In Us We Trust” MP3 where it premiered with VIBE today or HERE and feel free to post & share!
Previously known for her bands Bitch and Animal & Bitch and the Exciting Conclusion, Bitch is also known for playing herself in the John Cameron Mitchell film Shortbus. She will play a handful of dates this spring and stay tuned for more details on a fall US tour coming soon!
