Brigitte Aphrodite – ‘Creshendorious’

11692527_10153517020503128_6981214758682523978_nSinger, songwriter, poet, and feminist showgirl, Brigitte Aphrodite, releases her new single, ‘Creshendorious’, taken from her electrifying musical that she has written and performs in, ‘My Beautiful Black Dog’, which will be coming to the Latitude and Edinburgh Festivals in Summer 2015.  The new single will be released August 07 2015 and will be available to buy digitally through Beautiful Black Dog Records and will also be on her forthcoming album that is due to be released in Autumn 2015. All supporters of Brigitte Aphrodite’s Kickstarter will receive a complimentary download of the track. 

The song ‘Creshendorious’ is a musical form of spoken word that is rhythmic and dynamic with a hip-hop style instrumentation and lyrics that are “on the spur of the moment” and “off the top of the head” with a comedic and honest realism.  The song starts with an intimate finger style acoustic guitar and chilled out bass that breaks into a hip-hop beat with quiet samples and brief melodies that swell in the background ambience and begin to build as the song starts to take the form of a crescendo. As the music is introduced, the lyrics begin with an “in your face” spoken word vocal telling a painfully honest yet strangely humorous story that ascends into a chorus like hook with a more vocalized singing style. The intensity of the vocals and the dynamics of the instrumentation begin to swell and build as the song finally reaches a climax both lyrically and musically.

The new album by Brigitte Aphrodite was written in collaboration with Quiet Boy and all the songs were produced by Nick Trepka. The new album will feature the amazing track ‘Creshendorious’ that is drawn from the musical she will be performing in called, My Beautiful Black Dog. The show is described as,

“Black dog is what Winston Churchill used to call his depression… I have a beautiful black dog and I call her Creshendorious.”

Brigitte is championing a new kind of ‘gig theatre’ which draws as much on the history of rock and roll as it does traditional theatrical performance.”
