The Mortal Prophets have a transcendental sound. Known for their genre-bending affinities and innovative sonic constructs, the band deliberately juxtaposes contrasting frames to unveil a unique perspective. Led by singer-songwriter and artist, John Beckhamm, the evolving band drives at a musical dystopia. In their single, Born Under A Bad Sign, the band traces a life lived. With melancholy and woe driving the narrative, the dives in and out of harmony and discord.

One minute it’ll be winking with ethereal harmonies and melodic shoegaze and the next dive into a drum and bass landscape. The avant garde electronic underpinnings power the mercurial agents at the superficial level to form an existential narrative on bad luck, failure, struggles, and loneliness. Listen Now! 

John Beckhamm’s work is inspired by the blues legends like Robert Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson, and Charley Patton. Peddling their essence through a filter of the dark mystique of German electronica, the artist discovers brief flutters of humanity’s essence. This track is the band’s second single release this year, teasing their upcoming album. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
