"Blessed" features no guitar, only bass. The clip directed by Christopher Mills (TEGAN & SARA, RUSH, METRIC, MODEST MOUSE) boasts guest appearances from vocalist Eugene Robinson (OXBOW), cello by Natanielle Felicitas, and noise by Dylan Walker (FULL OF HELL).
KEN mode recorded 'Success' with legendary engineer Steve Albini (NIRVANA, THE JESUS LIZARD, PJ HARVEY) to capture the material in a fully live and analogue session in the band's hometown in November 2014. This set-up brought to fruition the most raw, rock and roll sound this band has ever put forth.
