We have always loved Daphne Guinness for the veritable living work of art that she is—and contend that she is one of the most under-utilized fashion designers of her generation. (Though it may be possible that no one could actually pull off her style but her.)
But the designer-model-artist-actress-philanthropist also makes music…and quite fascinating music at that. To wit, hauntingly sexy new single “Hallucinations,” which is something like medieval-psychedelia with a touch of Siouxsie style dark mysticism. Appropriately, the lyrics skirt the perimeter fence of surrealism, while also possibly representing a coded narrative of sorts.
“Parallel assassins hiding in plain sight / In the barren void of midnight,” she enigmatically relates.
She also warns “You may cross me once / But you will never cross me twice.” And we vigorously recommend taking her seriously on that point.
The track, produced by Bowie legend Tony Visconti, is taken from her upcoming album Revelations, due out later this year—and to be accompanied by a David LaChapelle film collaboration. Should we have expected anything less from her?
