Continuing to stoke the fiery anticipation around their sophomore album, Austin-based duo Street Sects have unviled a new song titled “The Drifter.” Driven by metallic clatter and vocalist Leo Ashline’s neo-noir narrative, the track serves as the bridge between the calamity of the duo’s 2016 debut (End Position, 2016) and the forthcoming melody leaning LP The Kicking Mule. Listen to “The Drifter” now courtesy of Echoes & Dust (or directly on YouTube).
After releasing post-punk masterpiece The Demonstration and embarking on several massive tours last year, Drab Majesty is back, and on the road in North America now alongside Deafheaven and Uniform. Focusing on the aesthetics of cult ritual and the devastating power of music, Drab Majesty’s live show has become a phenomenon in itself. Fronted by interdimensional muse Deb Demure and anchored by Mona D on keyboard accompaniment, Drab Majesty infuses goth with pulsing synth and shimmery “tragic wave” flourishes.
Having just returned from an extensive European jaunt, Brooklyn-based avant noir trio SANNHET are preparing to embark on a U.S. tour in the next two weeks.
