The animated video for BITCH (Half a Brain) reached over 30,000 views within days of it’s release. The first single from Che Zifandel’s EP, Art of an Unknown Celebrity, is a spicy number that puts a spin on the usual commentary about being called a bitch. In fact, all the songs on Art of an Unknown Celebrity are commentary perfectly flavored with a blend of soul, pop, and alternative. Ride On, is a song that addresses mortality and life struggles and provides those highs and lows within the composition and vocals. A dollar from each download of Art of an Unknown Celebrity goes to the Lupus Foundation of America. Che’s mother suffered from lupus so it is a cause that is very important to her.
“The opening track “BITCH (Half a Brain)”, is one of those songs which, while it may have been intended as a liberating and empowering feminist anthem appeals on so many levels. The idea of a woman using that term about herself as a weapon to highlight the stupidity of her lover is a clever twist….The five tracks on the EP convey a mix of styles and emotions, all executed with some aplomb and benefitting from some decent production which is often unusual in an artist starting out with recorded work.” CHARLES MARTEL – MUSIC EMISSIONS
“I wanted it to start out kind of sensual and pleasurable and then turn into this disastrous stalker type thing. I guess you can say it’s the musical version of Fatal Attraction.” CHE ZIFANDEL (on her cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ I Put a Spell On You)
