Rum Buffalo bring to you their garage rock opera “SCREMA PRECHA”, taking their listeners on an unpredictable journey through the eyes and mind of a lunatic prophet of doom.
Lead singer Jake Stevens describes the song as; “about being the villain. This helped me melodically shape this piece and tell his story, I created a disturbed character, corrupting souls and preaching anarchy across the world”. The haunting motifs that flow through the disjointed structure reflect the preachers lyrics… “torches cry, out in pain. Feel the fire screaming. I’m on the floor burning”.
A sonic explosion with melting synthesisers, a choir of howling voices and stacked horn harmonies are tied down by heavy drums and distorted bass guitar. Lead vocals are joined by a 13-piece choir comprised of the bands favourite female vocalists from the London scene. “We recorded these singers in the ancient St Anne's Church in Limehouse, sending them through a wavering old tape machine, giving the voices and otherworldly sound'.
The band are joined by front woman and rap artist Kathika of Slamboree, who brings a fiery 16 bars to the abrupt riff-based section of the song. “We were really thrilled to work with Kathika, having her perform on this track made so much sense as she is such an aggressive and lyrical performer. We were keen to capture what she brings live to the studio, much like what we were trying to capture as a band!”
The sheer raw sound of “SCREAMA PRECHA” is a perfect taste for what’s to come in Rum Buffalo’s debut album “BLOODMOON” coming soon
