After a few days bringing you the best of electronica and indie-pop we today return to something a little more dark and broody.
‘Saint Agnes’ are the holders of today’s GIGsoup Track of the Day with ‘A Beautiful Day for Murder’. The release is one half of a double A-side release ‘A Beautiful Day For Murder/Where The Lightning Strikes’ out now on Energy Snake Records. This new material follows hot on the heals of ‘Old Bone Rattle’ which we also featured on the site last year.

‘A Beautiful Day for Murder’ is a twisted ballad; a love song to death itself. “It’s the soundtrack to a dark and beautiful Western where Lana Del Ray stares down nick Cave in a saloon bar stand-off” says founding member Kitty Austen.
Saint Agnes are very much a DIY band and like fellow psych-collective Temples, record and produce their own music in their East London studio and have directed both upcoming music videos.
