New Noise Magazine is hosting a stream of Copenhagen-based experimental metal trio BYE BYE TSUNAMI’s eponymous debut EP on the eve of its release through Nefarious Industries.

BYE BYE TSUNAMI’s experi-metal/post-mental sounds hail from planet 無, by way of Denmark. The group is formed by three sick individuals who thrive in uncertainty and find delight in the entropy of noise, employing disrupted rhythms, unique/self-built futuristic wind instruments, and heartbreaking cyborg screams to expand the musical language beyond its wildest horizons. Scavenging the distressing remnants of a future no one wished for, the band is redefining the new era of post-real. The members first met in pre-pandemic Copenhagen after being respectively active in the noise/experimental/jazz/metal scenes of Berlin and Amsterdam in addition to their home city. Willing to realize their life dream of forming a dysfunctional boy band, in 2020 they finally give birth to BYE BYE TSUNAMI: monsters giving birth to other monsters.

The band – Lorenzo Colocci (flute, flaubosax, electronics), Søren Høi (drums), and Uldis Vitols (bass) – immediately captured the attention of the public with its unique sound imprint, their compositions based on the Flaubosax: a unique self-built futuristic wind instrument conceived by Colocci’s twisted mind. Generating new soundscapes with the use of a personal asymmetrical tonal system and interacting with complex powerful drum rhythms, they lead the music through disrupted absurd forms and post-industrial spiritual textures. The aesthetic and video works, curated by fictional audiovisual artist Nathan L., merge meticulously in a truly visionary dystopian universe, which, despite its frenetic nature, possesses a paradoxical sense of poetic and emotional sensibility, raising highly relevant questions about the role of social media, advertisement, and gender in contemporary society.

Recorded in Copenhagen in September 2020, the debut EP sees the core BYE BYE TSUNAMI trio joined by guest vocalist Praytell, the record mixed by Marco Colocci and completed with art by Nathan L.

Colocci writes, “This EP is the story of the music of the future.”
