REBEL YELL, the industrial-leaning electronic pop project of Naarm/Melbourne-based producer Grace Stevenson, returns with new single ‘TNT’, a collaboration with Berlin-based art-wave/techno artist Black Dahlia.
With clattering percussion, skulking bass, and distorted arpeggiated synths, the booming and vicious cut explores themes of power, exploitation, and liberation, taking inspiration from action-adventure monster film, King Kong.
REBEL YELL and Black Dahlia’s commanding chants drive the song like a drill sergeant, the duo lifting each other up as they proclaim “I’m living for free/I’m living for me/Can’t keep the reign on Kong/Ignite”.
The duo share, “REBEL YELL and Black Dahlia, like Kong, rarely attack unless provoked. After detonation, we show great degrees of strength in our battles to fight for our rights, and our life.”
