616Y is an electronic duo from Seattle, Washington, and have so far released one album entitled "Golly Mister!". Their upcoming album entitled "Harlot" is a modern retelling of Jeanne d'Arc's amazing story in which she turns around completely the 100 Years War by leading French soldiers and successfully kicking the British invaders out of France. In "Fade to Flowers", Jeanne is watching as British Westland Apache AH Mk1s(Attack helicopters) are invading her small town and laying waste to it. The second track on "Harlot", "Fade to Flowers" is essential to the story aspect of the album. The horror Jeanne feels as she watches France die in both flesh and spirit is personified by the intense saws. Cellos are used in the buildup to personify the sound of the MK1s, while a synthesized harpsichord is used to bring a medieval feel.
