“Shake” is the latest single and video from the debut Metal Mother album, Bonfire Diaries
Check out the exclusive premiere of the “Shake” video at Performer Magazine! Read a feature with Metal Mother in SOMA.
Oakland’s Tara Tati (performing as Metal Mother), is proving herself a formidable talent to contend with. In addition to her fantastic just-released debut album Bonfire Diaries, Tati has now produced, directed and styled “Shake,” the album’s first music video. The clip for the latest Bonfire Diaries single is a stunning visual experience sure to take Metal Mother (who also happened to release the album on her own Post Primal label) even further.
“The video for ‘Shake’ tells a story of an annihilation of the oppression that modern culture lays upon us,” Tati explains. Photographed and edited by Galen Oakes and Nelson Brazil of Manifest Media, “Shake” is a visually memorable and emotionally gripping video complete with alien women, smoky rooms, old buildings, gooey elixirs and the beautiful Tati herself, roaming through a dense rainforest. It’s just the kind of video one would expect and hope for from this emerging, unique artist.
Hailing from the edge of familiarity, singer-soundmaker Metal Mother developed Bonfire Diaries with nearly a dozen musical madmen, including Tommy Cappell of Beats Antique and Micha Grainger of The Yard Dogs Road Show. The 11 songs on Bonfire Diaries were mixed by Jeremy Black of Apollo Sunshine. Metal Mother will play the Lightning In A Bottle Festival with Pretty Lights, Thievery Corporation and more on May 27th at the Oak Canyon Ranch in Silverado, California. A west coast tour will be announced shortly.
Call Metal Mother, she wants to hear from you. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
