Steve Morell & Monika Pokorná – Lady Pheres (2012)

Scroll down to content

Lady Pheres is like the black pearl of Steve Morell´s upcoming album „The Life And Death Of Jimmy Pheres And His Rise From The Underworld“. It is as seducing as a melody played by a music box over and over again, possibly somewhere deep beneath the surface of the earth. The dialogue between “The Boy In The Black Chelsea Boots” and Lady Pheres (Steve Morell & Monika Pokorna) – is captivating and fascinating. Together they dive into a vacuum of confessions and emotions. The romance of the two reflects itself in every line. Piano sounds, metal & glass percussions, violins, cellos, guitars, vibraphones, bass and chimes are purposefully used to create a dreamy atmosphere. This instrumentally incisive melody repeats itself hypnotically throughout this masterpiece. Mixing and mastering of the tune was done by Ragnar, a long time friend and musical companion of Morell. This cooperation resulted into a unique, orchestral and sometimes even monumental sound. Morell & Pokorna were also accompanied by artists such as EF Kriete (Goldfish), Andrew Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten), Ben Belling (Goldfish), Carolin Werren, Kevin Mooney (Adam & The Ants), Ragnar, Karen Weber and Valerie Renay (Noblesse Oblige). With a hint of pop and its avant-garde elements the song has the potential to turn into one of the most romantic singles in years. “Lady Pheres” is, after “Loneliness”, the second single release of Morell’s upcoming conceptual album, “The Life And Death Of Jimmy Pheres And His Rise From The Underworld“. If Tim Burton were in search of a love song, this would be the one for his new movie!
