Opening The Language of Birds by The Hot Place, is the cinematic “Petals of Ruin,” featuring an on-edge Mini Korg synth line mixed with a paisley whiff of 12 string guitars.
LK: "Petals of Ruin is about overcoming negativity and the disintegration of old habits of being. I really wanted to capture a gothy post-punk vibe mixed with a bit of a euro spy-thrilling vintage synth part. We ran my bass though a distortion pedal, and it's really big and menacing. Yet, the vocal is rather delicate, and there are some chimey 12 string accents throughout the song, which add some contrast. The highlight is definitely the ripping guitar solo that Jeff Calder performs in the song. I think he can put his boot up on the monitors during that instrumental break!"
