You Can Call Me SIR released their second EP, CANNIBAL in online stores October 20, 2021, on the full Hunter’s Moon.
Following the EP release, on Halloween, is a new music video / short film CANNIBAL, directed by AJ Strout. The film is inspired by Kenneth Anger’s use of homoeroticism and the occult and is a performative death ritual brought on by an altered state, featuring scenes of torture, force-feeding and live burial. Cannibal is inspired by a longing for intimacy in a time of forced separation, the mediated consumption of lovers via digital device and the hollow loss and uncertainty brought on by a virus beyond our control. CANNIBAL is about consuming those we love… and you taste sweet, darling.
Jackalope is the new video and second single off You Can Call Me Sir’s debut EP Blood Moon. Directed by Cassils, the video stars Sir who plays a “female” bandit/serial killer who takes down patriarchy. One blood sacrifice at a time.
THIS LOVE IS ON FIRE
This Love Is On Fire is the first single from You Can Call Me Sir's debut EP. The video premiered at the 2019 Outfest Los Angeles LGBTQ Film Festival as part of the Platinum Showcase at the MOCA Grand on Saturday, July 20th.
This Love Is On Fire was directed by Cassils and stars the legendary Mistress Sheree Rose. The video portrays an intergenerational power exchange steeped in female sexuality and features sex workers across age spectrums. With abject encounters that sizzle and smolder, This Love is on Fire traces the matriarchal lineage of female dominance in a political moment charged with the suppression of women’s rights.
BLOOD MOON EP
Blood Moon is now available for streaming and in online stores!
"The music reflects on magic and rituals that we participate in, either accidentally or self-curated and how these rituals have an effect on our lived identities. It wonders why we compose these rituals...what kind of power we gain, what kind of power we take from others, unconsciously and consciously. This music is haunting like the South... it's about smoldering desires... how delicate humans are and how we don’t even know each other at all." - Cristy & Matt
You Can Call Me Sir is a electronic rock band based in Los Angeles featuring multi-instrumentalists & dominatrix Cristy Michel (vocals, bass, guitar, beats & beatings) and Matt Petty (horns, verbiage, moody elements, and found sounds). The band’s dominating rhythm, spellbinding lyrics and haunting atmospheres conjure themes of horror, ritual and dark love. Their debut EP “Blood Moon” was featured in Paper Magazine who compared their sound to “Bauhaus meets Peaches.” Music videos have been featured in OUTFEST and countless other festivals worldwide. Their music can be heard in online record stores including Spotify, Bandcamp, and Apple Music.
