Got someone’s hand to hold on Valentine’s Day? Whatever your relationship status, we suggest you make your way to 529 in Atlanta to catch The Casket Girls. Straight out of spooky Savannah, this ethereal trio just released a new single off their second album, True Love Kills The Fairy Tale. And much like the group, we don’t believe in coincidences – they’re coming on February 14 to sweep us off our feet.
First things first, though: this kickass single. “Day To Day” is a mystical track from CG’s upcoming album, True Love Kills The Fairy Tale, featuring shoegaze-y beats by Ryan Graveface, of Black Moth Super Rainbow fame (or you may know him from our awesome interview last year). These instrumentals remind us subtly of My Bloody Valentine, but the beauty is in how they mingle with the harmonies of sisters Phaedra and Elsa Greene. Light but not too frothy, their voices play well with quite an intense backdrop. What we’re most impressed by, though, is how this release manages to be both moody and uplifting at the same time.
Don’t be afraid to let your mind wander when listening to the track – after all, the chorus puts you in a dark fairy tale sort of mood with lyrics like, “Day to day/Straight from the rabbit hole/But we’re still going down.” Feeling like Alice yet? Good. We’re betting that’s no coincidence either.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the release of True Love Kills The Fairy Tale, out February 11 through Graveface Records.

Kate Foster is a hodgepodge of seemingly unrelated titles: writer. Blogger. Beauty and fashion junkie. Cat devotee. Art history buff. Harry Potter nerd. Cheesy 90's television fan. Sometimes-gamer. Seasonal sculptor. Mostly she’s a music enthusiast. While her heart and soul belong to 50's and 60's crooners like Etta James, Sam Cooke and Elvis Presley, one shouldn’t be surprised to find her listening to Lady Gaga or Jay-Z. Most days, though, she’s in an indie-punk mood somewhere in between - she counts the Pixies, the White Stripes, M83, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs as a few of her favorites. And while you’ll typically see her bobbing her head calmly at concerts, occasionally she pulls out all the stops for bands like the Black Lips. She treasures her bruises like a child. After graduating from the University of Georgia with degrees in Journalism and Art History, Kate aspires to move to New York City. There, she hopes to continue to write. She also plans on pretending to understand the art at MoMA and stuffing her face with cronuts and one dollar pizza. Kate’s heroes range from Oscar de la Renta and Mindy Kaling to Ernest Hemingway and Rupert Giles. She practically inhales iced coffee on a daily basis. Her favorite color is yellow, and like Buddy the Elf, she considers candy a major food group. She has dreams almost every night involving the coolest architecture and interior design, and has no idea what it means. Seriously, what does that mean?!
