We are incredibly excited to share the very first Cellar Darling song with you! Along with ‘Challenge’, we have also released another song from the same writing and recording sessions: ‘Fire, Wind & Earth’ is a bonus track we couldn’t keep from you any longer!
‘Challenge’ is about an inner struggle, a battle you are fighting against yourself and the world. It is you, screaming at yourself in the mirror and getting high on new-found strength. It is failing, overcoming and achieving. The bipolar dance that is life.
We have fallen. We have screamed. We have battled. We found strength. We will overcome.
The lyric video features the talented actress Fabienne Fellmann (who is also featured on the cover artwork). It is based on an idea by Anna Murphy, directed by Anna Murphy & Cellar Darling, with videography and editing by Merlin Sutter and generous post production help by Michel Frutig at Maybaum Film.
Both songs were recorded and produced by Cellar Darling and Marco Jencarelli & Anna Murphy Soundfarm studios, mixed by Tommy Vetterli at Newsound studios, and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street studios. All strings are recorded by the one and only Shir-Ran Yinon, and the artwork features photography by Merlin Sutter.
**** Lyrics: ****
The time is nigh
all the echoes reciting to me
I'll read the sky
the footsteps my enemies left for me
This is the sound, this is the sound, this is the sound hear me shout it out loud
Challenge me to the death
with my feet stuck to the ground
How can we cherish our inner demons
without shouting it, letting it, fighting it out
Challenge me 'til the early dawn
with my hands tied at the back
I know I'll bring you down
to your knees at last
Crying mercy, mercy, have mercy on me
I can't deny you're hollow
and I can't wait to bring you down
Delights my eyes
And feeds my old ever so vengeful heart
This is the sound, this is the sound, this is the sound of you hitting the ground
This is the sound, shout it out loud, shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
