Experiment IV

Kate Bush is, without a doubt, one of the most reclusive and secretive singer-songwriters to emerge from the loopy British art-rock surroundings of the late 1970s. While Bush’s works have only been mildly successful, with regards to commercial-chart performance, she has managed to garner a rabidly loyal coterie of true blue fans who have unequivocally worshipped every note and word she has put out on record. Bush's songs are objects of rare art and merit, intricately structured, instrumentally complex compositions that touch upon domestic violence, emotional frigidity, recurrent psychosis and other entertaining subjects unique to the human condition. Check out the propulsive 'Experiment IV' from 1986, one of Bush's lesser known but no less potent singles, which comes with a disturbingly surreal narrative video about a secret military experiment gone horribly wrong.
