You know when you listen to a song for the first time and you fall in love with it? My first listen I simply sat, emptied my mind and let Persephone in the Underworld’s ‘You Are Being Lied To’ wash over me. You should listen to it like this too, they deserve all of your attention and to give them any less of it would be rude. I needed some peace with the chaos of life at the moment and this song truly brought it to me.
Self-managed and astounding, Persephone in the Underworld are based in Buckinghamshire, with originals ranging over several genres and styles including psychedelic, alternative, blues, jazz indie and more. Is there anything they can’t do?
I don’t think any words do ‘You Are Being Lied To’ the full justice it deserves. Frontwoman Persephone’s vocals are truly breath-taking and will leave you with goosebumps, the instrumentals delivered from guitarist Shaun and bassist Steven accompany the vocals perfectly. But then when you think it can’t get any better, we reach a mid-point to the song where the vocalist pleads ‘Don’t give in’ and drummer Robin appears, with insanely powerful drumming and then the song goes back to a softer, psychedelic feel and we reach the end.
With such a uniqueness to their sound, Persephone in The Underworld is truly something else. I’d love to catch them at their next live performance!
