I can think of and go back to several different stories. First of all, reminds me of the story of Cain and Able, the two sons of Adam and Eve. Cain was the first human born and Abel was the first human to die while Cain committed the first murder by killing his brother. On the other hand, directed by Orson Welles release on 5 September 1941, “Citizen Kane” was a drama which explored the life and legacy of the publishing tycoon Charles Foster Kane, played by Welles. Nothing of this are directly related to the latest Thot EP, but then again, everything in this world is somehow related and inter-connected. “Citizen Pain” is in particularly nobody, but he’s everybody and anybody, one of us and each one of us. Even the pain became meaningless nowadays. Or we became insensitive to the suffering of the others… and get comfortable with our own misery.
We all have our shadows and lights, we have our own Cain and Able hidden inside of us and we all are in a certain way Citizen Kane.
Released on 27th May, the new Thot EP called Citizen Pain, consist of 6 tracks including a remix of the title track by german producer T.Raumschmiere (he’s worked with Apparat, Ellen Allien, Miss Kittin & more), but also remixes from their latest single, Rhythm.Hope.Answers, made by yheir fans during a contest we’ve set up for 2 months.
A video directed by Grégoire Fray, Arielle Moens & Jeremy Moulin was released on Jun 17, 2013.
A trip into the future exploring the post-industrial field of sounds, Thot is the Belgian answer to Nine Inch Nails and How to Destroy Angels. Getting influences from Reznor’s work Grégoire Fray and his band mates are revealing new paths and dimensions of electronic/industrial music. “Citizen Pain” and “Rhythm.Hope.Answers” are both powerful and vibrant songs which only feed your hunger to want to listen more!
“The more you breed, the less you dream.
The more you fake, the less you create.
The sooner you want it, the harder you get it.
The faster you drive, the higher you’re gonna dive.
The time you spend, to forget about the end.
The smile you save, in front of your mistakes.
Your power of buying is nothing but lying.
The power of lying, is nothing but pretending.
I saw towers, eaten by the clouds.
I saw bridges, running out from the flood.
I saw shadows, eaten by the fool.
I saw buildings, waiting for the bloom.
I saw my path, coming from the south, the door back to the north, has been cut and paste.
I’m waiting for her, I couldn’t find my way, people in there, hold so dark secrets.
Let me show you how we can slow down the collapse of the world through the days that come.
Let me show you.
Let me choke you.
I can’t explain, all my fury, my fucking shame, I’m not sorry, it’s not enough.
Nothing but the void, into my belly, a red vertigo, I’m deep into fear, I’m not sorry.”
