The sleek guitars that have become a staple of the bands sound for sweep this track along, with it’s fidgeting groove keeping you locked in. There’s twists, turns and mind boggling movements in this three minute anthem of queer retribution. It’s disco but dark.

Watch Empath’s new video for “Born 100 Times”

Empath today release a video for their new single “Born 100 Times”, and the first new music they’ve shared since 2019’s Active Listening: Night on Earth. 

On the track, Catherine Elicson’s razor sharp delivery serves as a counterweight to the instrumental onslaught. “‘Born 100 Times’ is structurally very simple, consisting of a couple of hooks and a verse sung overtop of two repeated chords. I imagined a restructured pop song, having it start instantly with the hook and then eventually reaching a verse. While the lyrics are a somewhat spiritual reflection on devotion and power in one’s life, an isolating and very internal experience, the video offers a different viewpoint,” Elicson says.

“The video began as an idea Randall had of us showing up with cameras at the New York State fair. There’s something beautiful and nostalgic about a fair we wanted to try and capture. Two friends, Halle Ballard and Johnny Costa, filmed us having real, uninhibited fun running around, eating fried food, absolutely dominating the carnival games, drinking countless wine slushies, getting spun around on rides, and just enjoying being together. It was a much needed night of leisure at the end of a long summer spent preparing for the next phase of Empath. The video is a document of this special moment in time for us. United together, we left behind the isolating, internal struggles of our lives and connected to the real world outside of ourselves.”
