PINKISH BLACK: Invisible Oranges Premieres “Dial Tone” Video From Texas Experimental Duo; Concept Unification Full-Length To See Release Next Month Via Relapse Records

“The distorted bass guitar that underpins the back half of the slow dirge definitely contributes to that sense of foreboding red and blue neon mist lingering in digital graveyards, as does the patient plod of the drums and the dramatic piano. The synthesizers meanwhile feel like something out of a 1970s science fiction novel cover, the era where slipstream was king and heady literary genre psychedelic trip-outs were the norm…” — Invisible Oranges on “Dial Tone”

Texas experimental duo PINKISH BLACK has unveiled the hypnotic, second single, “Dial Tone,” via Invisible Oranges.

The band’s latest psalm comes by way of their impending new full-length, Concept Unification, set for release on June 14th via Relapse Records. Writes Invisible Oranges, “Where other tracks on the record explore the post-Steve Moore/post-Emeralds noise-influenced synth soundscape realm in its various forms, ‘Dial Tone’ focuses very specifically on doom metal associations. The distorted bass guitar that underpins the back half of the slow dirge definitely contributes to that sense of foreboding red and blue neon mist lingering in digital graveyards, as does the patient plod of the drums and the dramatic piano. The synthesizers meanwhile feel like something out of a 1970s science fiction novel cover, the era where slipstream was king and heady literary genre psychedelic trip-outs were the norm.”

Concept Unification is PINKISH BLACK’s most adventurous record to date. Each of its six tracks explore the innermost depths of forward-thinking doom rock, as psychedelic undertones collide with dark, crushing heaviness. Brooding synthesizers on Concept Unification’s opening title track give way to the impending melancholy found on “Dial Tone” while the progressive flourishes of “Petit Mal” showcase PINKISH BLACK‘s ability to manipulate dark ambience. Album closer “Next Solution” presents a somber, contemplative piano performance front-and-center, before exploding into a dramatic whirl of choirs and rhythmic pummeling. Concept Unification is a beast of its own, pontificating on themes of anxiety, futility, and emptiness, and finding PINKISH BLACK as vital to the independent scene as ever.

Concept Unification will be available on CD, LP, and digital formats. Physical packages are available for preorder via Relapse.com HERE. Digital downloads and streaming services are available HERE.
