Half Girl Half Beast

by Walter Price

Our favorite noir-voiced singer-songwriter Lo Carmen has returned with a slowburn ‘psych-blues garage howler’ called “Half Girl Half Beast” and she got the band back together. In what’s been described as ‘swampy’ and an ode to those undeniable primal desires.

The recent Top Selling author (Lovers Dreamers Fighters, HarperCollins), Carmen delivers an affecting and lusty ride with this current single. “I feel diseased/ Infected by desire/ When I shut my eyes/ I hear this heavenly choir/ I’m half girl half beast/ Half of me is girl/ But the rest of me is beast…” Potent verses like this are only more eagerly tormented by the bluesy drivetrain and Peter Head’s ghostly Hammond organ.

Overall, “Half Girl Half Beast” is pure Lo Carmen through and through. A track like her previous releases that won’t let you walk away iúnscatherd. And you can stream the single, here at the GTC.

My eyes are ringed with darkness
My body’s black and blue
I ain’t been getting any sleep
And its all because of you
I’m half girl, half girl half beast
Half of me is girl
But the rest of me is beast
