Premiere: SCHKEUDITZER KREUZ ‘Ratchet’

Share This:

Ratchet is the new video single from Australian-based Industrial Synth Crust outfit Schkeuditzer Kreuz, alias Kieren Hills, and the third single from their latest album, No Life Left. The video is produced and directed by David Xuereb of Sydney’s Grim Reflections.

An almost carnivalesque performance, and regular crowd favourite live, Kieren describes the origins of the song: “This song started with the beat that sits under the verse, and it all came together from there: first the kind of bouncy, almost circus-like synth line – I could hear it in my head as soon as the drums came together. And from that, I put the lyrics together: about the show, the performance that is both what I do with music, but also the performance that is life. The whole thing is reanalysing what is going on in my head as I try to throw everything I have into life, whilst always hearing that clock ticking: knowing I am getting older and falling apart, and that it is going to end one day.”
