Black Pope’s ‘Goth Girl’ Single and Video Out Now

Berlin-based recording artist Black Pope has just released a new single called ‘Goth Girl’, and it’s sure to bring a smile (and maybe even some eyeliner) to your face. The song is accompanied by a self-directed music video which sees upcoming actress Hannah Lee leading a double life and generally causing trouble.

Goth Girl is a celebration of every dark counterculture that ever existed. What I love about those cultures is the willingness to express their dark side out loud. That’s what this Goth Girl represents. She’s a dark and strong tornado of badassery and she likes what she likes,” the songwriter explains.

The song was recorded with producer Cian Riordan (St. Vincent, Mini Mansions) and is the first single from Black Pope’s debut album which is set for release next year. The album was recorded over seven days in Monique Studios in Cork, Ireland and has been described by the artist as “a love letter to loserville.”

Black Pope’s music has been described by Mojo Magazine as a neo-rock’n’roll soundtrack of surf guitar rumble. Rewriting adolescent love stories as horror movies, Black Pope borrows from classic and contemporary rock’n’roll to take you back to an era that never existed. Currently establishing his cult in Berlin, people are drawn to his high energy performances, hip-shaking charisma and an insatiable appetite for all things dark and mysterious. For many, this is the end of civilisation as we know it. For Black Pope, it’s just another full moon.
