Black Pope: Werewolf, Man

In agreement with the spirit of Halloween, Werewolf, Man, the new single by Berlin-based artist, Black Pope, comes right in time for the October full moon, while sounding like a noble successor to the often horror-themed garage punk spirit of The Cramps, The Fuzztones and the like.

Very concise, yet, rather biting, the new song is a perfectly produced, uncanny rock 'n' roll cut, which comes with an accordingly spooky video redolent of slasher and supernatural horror b-movies from the eighties, starring Lucie Aron (Replace, Berlin Syndrome), and written directed and edited by Black Pope.

"I love the mythology of werewolves because the transformation is so sudden and so dangerous," says the artist about the song and its concept which centers on a small community that battles a werewolf problem. "The imagery is so universal that I feel like you can interpret it as a rich and personal metaphor, or just a cool song about werewolves. I’m not sure exactly what was going through my head at the time, but in general I had a strong desire to burst out of my skin."

The new song, recorded with producer Cian Riordan (St. Vincent, Mini Mansions), comes from Black Pope's coming debut album which was earlier introduced with first single, Goth Girl
