Bodega reveal new single ‘Knife On The Platter’

It’s the latest slice of their forthcoming mini-album ‘Shiny New Model’.

After unveiling ‘Shiny New Model’ - the title track of their forthcoming mini-album - back in August, Bodega are back with latest slice of shimmering rock’n’roll with new cut ‘Knife on the Platter’.

“‘Knife on the Platter’ is a narrative song. I was imagining a top notch Gena Rowlands-esque actress who is cast in a mediocre gothic who nonetheless elevates the script’s schlocky material through her absolute commitment to authentically live each moment of the play,” says Ben Hozie. “She performs as if the gods are watching - she ‘acts’ as if each gesture will be set in stone for the future to see. That’s a show business trick - when performing imagine your heroes are in the room. You will no longer mess around. Twice in the song Zeus responds via the lightning striking from Madison’s guitar. That’s the thing: even when you are totally alone and lost - someone is (or will always be) watching your actions. Choose wisely.”
