Bodega Shares Single, "Knife On The Platter"

The Brooklyn-based post-punk BODEGA releases a new single, “Knife On The Platter,” from the band’s forthcoming EP, Shiny New Model (What’s Your Rupture?), which drops October 11th. The single follows the release of the band’s title track. “Knife on the Platter” charges forward with resounding bass and sharp, nearly-shouted vocals.

“‘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 vocalist/guitarist 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.”

The band is rounded out by Nikki Belfiglio (art director, vocals, samples, hi-hat), Heather Elle (bass), Madison Velding Vandam (lead guitar, producer), and the new addition of Tai Lee (stand-up percussionist). The band begins touring in support of the album on the day of its release. Tour dates listed below.
