‘Out Of Our Minds’

Though the promise of MAdM’s multimedia project Out Of Our Minds (or OOOM, as she often refers to it) has been a bright, tantalising promise on the horizon for far too long now. Five years on from her solo debut Auf Der Maur, the former Hole bassist is rewarding patient fans with a free musical gift in exchange for their email addresses. Due for release in February, Out Of Our Minds will be accompanied by a short film of the same name alongside an original score, viral marketing and a comic book. The title track is an intriguing slice of cinematic audio, replete with the flame-haired artist’s rich, wild calls and fiercely romantic lyricism. Big, relentess basslines are married to rapid, ticking guitars and a rolling beat, a perfect soundtrack for the the upcoming video which, according to her blog, was “shot on solar power with real fireballs and bleeding trees”. A sneak preview of the video can be seen on her official website, and while her touring escapades have yet to spill over to our side of the Atlantic, it’s exciting to see this project finally coming to fruition.
