Back in November we were digging the spookysexycool “Concrete
Waves”
from songstress Kendra Morris, and this week she unveiled the second
single from her new album Banshee, due
out late summer 2012 on Wax Poetics Records. Here’s the video for the tune:

 

 

 

 

 

“‘If You Didn’t Go’ is about that first person you ever
loved and how even years later you still find yourself thinking about them.”
Morris says, of the song. “What are they doing now, are they happy and do they
ever think of you? Questions, questions, questions.”

 

Inspired in name by wailing female demons from Irish
folklore, Banshee is an amalgam of stories, both imagined and
Morris’s own, produced by previous collaborator Jeremy Page. “In a way,
banshees just cast spells with their voices,” Morris says, “and I just think
some of the greatest singers do the same thing.”

 

Keep your eyes peeled for the new print edition of BLURT as
we’ll have an interview with Morris, who talks about getting her career
underway, the fortuitous moment when she caught the attention of Wax Poetics,
and the relationship breakup that fueled many of the songs on the new album.
