As Force My Hand, the debut recording from avant rock duo, PSALM ZERO, is set for release next week, Invisible Oranges hosts an exclusive listen to the EP’s B-side excursion; the outfit’s eclectic rendition of Today Is The Day’s longtime heralded anthem, “Willpower.” While the original track boasts TITD’s monumental, visionary style of tormented metallic extremism, PSALM ZERO rebuilds this now twenty year-old classic in a whole new way, interpreting the song as an experimental neo-folk dirge, with delicate acoustic guitars, orchestral percussion, synth drones, and Medieval vocal harmonies; virtually portraying the track as a whole new work of their own.
Experience “Willpower” again with PSALM ZERO’s rendition of the song now at Invisible Oranges, RIGHT HERE.
Pitchfork also recently unveiled the A-side to the single still playing HERE.
NYC-based duo PSALM ZERO aligns Andrew Hock, of Castevet, and Charlie Looker, of recently-disbanded Extra Life, in a new experimental rock venture, pulsing with a vibrant blend of genres and style into a mesmerizing style of their own. The duo has confirmed that Profound Lore will be releasing their debut LP in Spring 2014, but the material on the Force My Hand 7″ is exclusive to this release. Force My Hand will be available through Looker’s own Last Things Records on November 19th; preorders are available HERE.
PSALM ZERO will perform at their record release show for the 7″ Brooklyn on November 22nd alongside Kayo Dot and Vaura, followed by a gig in Queens on December 5th supporting avant-noise technicians, Gnaw.
