I’ve got a shiny black coffin, with room enough for two,” coos Piney Gir in this musical treat with a little bit of sassy trick thrown in for good measure. 'My Halloween' is set for release on October 28th, just in time for the annual day of the dead. Inspired by her favourite holiday, Piney couldn’t let Halloween pass her by this year without writing a song especially for it. For those of you who are just discovering Piney Gir, she is from Kansas and was subject to a strict religious upbringing, so growing up in the Bible Belt meant that Halloween was the one night a year where she could dress up and be anything she wanted to be (luckily she was allowed to celebrate the festive night). “Us kids would hang around in packs and go trick or treating. It was empowering, it represented a night of freedom, a time when I could go a little bit wild, howl at the moon, get high on too much sugar... For one night I could be something else and get lots of candy, both of these things were really appealing!” recalls Piney. “Then when we got older, Halloween was a holiday for different kinds of wildness, we’re talking Lost Boys-esque, rebel-cave hide-aways with moonshine in a jar and citrus raves in warehouses down by the docks, dancing to bands like Book of Love and the KLF. Halloween was the ultimate escape.” And escape she did! She’s lived in London for over a decade now, “But I still miss a good ol’ American-style Halloween,” says Piney. Piney Gir’s My Halloween single is due for release on Damaged Goods Records, October 28th 2013.
