shi offline’s debut single, God Is A Witch was released on 3rd July via German Independent label Audiolith and distributed by Shellshock. Taken from the bands album Golaya, God is a Witch is what the band discussed with The Fountain as well as the venue they are most excited about next playing.
TF: You have a new single out, what can we expect from God Is A Witch?
The track describes my writing, but also my entering, triggered by toxic structures and expectations – expectations that are linked to my humanity, utopic role models that rather cause me to wither than to flourish. But there comes the realization, the awareness about the frustrating situation and thereby the burndown and wipeout of that situation. There is a silver lining, a unification, the establishment of own structures – own healing structures.
TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence?
It’s my liberation cry.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?
We’ve got two more singles to be released ending up with the whole album Golaya to be re-released in UK.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
I think we enjoyed smaller club venue gigs as well as performing in Vietnam in front of a couple thousand people. Playing the Elbphilharmonie was somewhat impressive and scary. Next places hopefully will be in the UK…when it’s possible again.
