Holy Wars are back with new music! The duo, featuring Kat Leon and Nick Perez, have shared their new single “Deux Ex Machina,” marking their first release on new label Pale Chord.
The single arrives with a new video, which takes through a literal rollercoaster ride of Leon’s dark psyche. Speaking about the song’s themes she says:
“Deus Ex Machina was inspired by my love of psychology and how fascinating the brain is. The God of the human machine. Deus Ex Machina meaning God from the Machine really helped shape the message of what I wanted to say lyrically in this song, how our personal narrative is powerful. We often rewrite our stories as the hero’s tale but we very possibly could be the villain in another’s. Our words are powerful and our story is our legacy. In this song I wanted to display the attack side of the narrative, how any issue I have had with another has stemmed from projection, a choice and the power I allow it to have. The ghost in the machine haunting my thoughts and puppeting my actions. Deus Ex Machina is a hard-hitting wild sonic ride of the mania that lives underneath us all.”
