Part of Toronto-based singer-songwriter Andy Shauf’s new double-track release (available as a limited edition, signed, seven-inch, translucent vinyl), the single “Satan” pairs exquisite indie-folk energy with lyrics pertaining to the recoding artist’s childhood in a church that referred to Halloween as ‘The Devil’s Day.'” Shauf says in a statement, “After a few years of this, my parents realized it was a bit silly to deny us our free candy and let us resume. The Christianity that I was brought up in said that believers went to heaven and non-believers went to hell. A sort of cartoon-like simplification of ancient texts.” The track is accompanied by a home video-style recording with experimental attributes, directed by Canadian independent filmmaker Ryan Steel, shot across the prairies of Winnipeg.
