Beirut based Kid Fourteen's second album is Blood-thick Silence.
The eight tracks that make up Blood-thick Silence conjure a vision of euphoric despair; moments of pure melancholy swing to nihilistic hope.
Close your eyes and the record feels almost voyeuristic, like you're watching Khodor stood alone in a club surrounded by people dancing and partying - ?I've always imagined my music as a closing scene to a long night out and the emotion that comes with it,? says Khodor.
Written after quitting his full time job and locking himself in his studio for months, Blood-thick Silence is an intensely personal record - ?it feels like I declared war instead of reaching out for empathy and support?.
Decipher Kid Fourteen's vocal and you'll find tales of pleasure, love, spite, intoxication, loneliness and everything in between.
Blood-thick Silence is also released as a picture book and CD, available here.
