Brooklyn-based band BODEGA are currently prepping for the release of their mini-album Shiny New Model on October 11th via What’s Your Rupture?, but until then, they've shared a taste of what's to come with their latest single 'Knife On The Platter'.

Their compelling new track is constructed like a narrative according to Ben Hozie of the band. "I was imagining a top notch Gena Rowlands-esque actress who is cast in a mediocre gothic who nonetheless elevates the script's schlocky material through her absolute commitment to authentically live each moment of the play,"

He also said, "She performs as if the gods are watching - she 'acts' as if each gesture will be set in stone for the future to see. That's a show business trick - when performing imagine your heroes are in the room. You will no longer mess around. Twice in the song Zeus responds via the lightning striking from Madison's guitar. That's the thing: even when you are totally alone and lost - someone is (or will always be) watching your actions. Choose wisely."

If 'Knife On The Platter' is anything to go off, Shiny New Model is set to be a dynamic offering home to sharp lyrics and a rich fusion consisting of post-punk and some BODEGA magic.
