The Greek alt-rock band The Callas released the LP Half Kiss Half Pain on the 29th of January.
The second of the ten tracks Sad Erection is a piece which encapsulates the melancholic disappointment that is the territory of The Callas. Interestingly a day in which back to back reviews seemingly reference unrequited sexual fulfilment whilst more broadly speaking of personal isolation in a world of supposed ‘connectivity.
The spoken voice which starts Sad Erection sets the mood prior to the second vocal expressing the emotional harshness of desperately clawing for some sort, any sort of union and the track continues with the two voices weaving around each other in ever greater lament. Framing the vocal element The Callas finesse the song with instrumentation that is even more mournful and sobbing with bereft lonesomeness.
Half Kiss Half Pain – The Callas is available on iTunes.*
