Death Valley Girls New Single

After releasing their album 'Darkness Rains'  last year, Los Angeles doom boogie/dystopian punk/occult glam rockers Death Valley Girls are sharing a new standalone single, Dream Cleaver, via Suicide Squeeze Records.

Based on your current station in our technological age, Death Valley Girls’ fusion of feral proto-punk, ‘70s scuzz dirges, and third eye mysticism is either completely at odds with your worldview or utterly revelatory. Words like “retro” or “old school” convey a starry eyed nostalgia that do a disservice to the band’s harnessing of primal instrumentation and communal reverberations—if something in Death Valley Girls’ sound harkens to the past, it’s only in an attempt to dislodge us from the static of the present.

That dedication to lifting the veil of modern illusions continues with Dream Cleaver’, a rousing anthem in praise of psychonaut and ethnobotanist Terrence McKenna, his research on “the spirit molecule” DMT, and the possibility of trans-dimensional travel. If you need to get elevated, take a three-minute dose of Dream Cleaver’.

 

 

True Moon Release Poison

Poison is the first single from True Moon's upcoming second album, II. True Moon released their critically acclaimed self-titled album in 2016. The Swedish quartet offers an enchanting blend of dark wave, post-punk, and alternative that eclipses musical trends. Formed by members of Grammy-nominated band Vånna Inget, they have created a charming darkness together.

True Moon's 2016 self-titled debut, a brooding yet sensual work that garnered attention in the Scandinavian music community and beyond. With influences including Joy Division, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Sisters of Mercy, The Mission, early Cure, Stevie Nicks and Heart, they channeled a sound of bittersweet twilight.

True Moon expanded their audience with performances in Sweden, the UK, and the United States, playing with bands like Killing Joke, King Dude, MCC, Against Me! and many more. Now poised for their next release, titled II, True Moon has nowhere to go but up. "We want to draw our own cult of believers together and create a little chaos of our own," Karolina says. "We want this record to be like an infectious poison."
