kissing candace“‘Raise Her’ is a complete serotonin overload, saturated in fetishism in all respects,” says guitarist Dreamer. “The song explores and exploits the different and varied ways humans tend to indulge themselves in whatever gets them off.

I want people to watch this music video and walk away saying, ‘What the hell was that!?!? I like it.’” Watch below:
