Finally, an act that fully realises the intersection of art and music. Eris is the mysterious main puppeteer of this act with an ensemble of dancers, and performers that really amp up and make each gig an absolute event.
What I adore about this single and the damn video is it reminds me of true artisans who mix up genres and make it unique, heartfelt and so engaging. The electronica contained on this track is tense, and foreboding and drips in sensual emotion-artists like Nick Cave and PJ Harvey have done this so well, subtle but so immorally dazzling. The main style is ironically almost raw blues meets slow post-punk, but phenomenally gothy; like in a dancey way. yes, that is distinctively unique and so powerful.
It is punk-like, country/R'N'B, gothic and anything else it damn wants to be, AND I FUCKING LOVE THAT ABOUT THIS BAND. Original, unique and damn catchy.
This is the scorching spiel on the track by the artist:The song URBAN COWBOY is written around the way different categories of how people represent themselves in the world. The song explores humour to the idea of a 'city cowboy' or in this instance 'urban cowboy.' The song is composed to cover all different groups of beings in the world, a fun way of twisting the modern trends and categories.
Urban Cowboy mentions a few different subcultures and people within their own communities. This lyric is a way to express that we are able to be inclusive, it is okay to be there and we don’t need to be within these boundaries of segregating ourselves from each other. Urban cowboy is a concept, not a person, it’s a play on the game and the struggle to succeed as an outsider and an artist.
Money, fame and fortune, failure success and hardship.
Urban Cowboy politely takes the Mickey out of people that may inauthentically place themselves into certain fad that then separates us all to who is better and more likely to succeed.
Eris & The Disciples are a group of incredibly diverse performers, although as individuals we don’t necessarily belong in any particular group in the world. Despite that, we all love each other and we all love our fans and that said, we love our urban cowboys, the track is real, and brave honest and humorous.
