“Step inside a Lynchian underworld that takes its cues from Bill Callahan’s alt-country-tinged Smog project and indie-folk icon Elliot Smith” – Dazed & Confused
Sweet Surrender by Sirens of Titan is the second single from Apocalypse Sessions, out now on Smile Records. The Sirens of Titan are the musical incarnation of author, editor and poet John-Paul Pryor, whose debut novel Spectacles was praised by Dazed & Confused magazine as “A dreamlike vision of a lawless dystopian future”, drawing comparison to works of other underground outsiders, such as Jean Genet."
Lyrically, Apocalypse Sessions contains the hallmarks of melancholia, desire and transgression that underpins all John-Paul’s work, inviting the listener into a raw, flawed and poetic dreamtime. The entire album was recorded in live session with the producer Andy Strange and John-Paul’s long-time musical partners Jez Leather and Sami Salo, know collectively as The Sirens of Titan. The film is directed by Bonnie Foster.
