“A swirling, textural piece of subtly skewed pop music, the track is lent even greater captivation thanks to the eerie new video which sees twin sisters, Sari and Romy, spliced in to various scenes that feel increasingly uncanny.” ~ GOLD FLAKE PAINT

NAILBITER (Josh Korody of BELIEFS) new album Waveshaper, mastered by David Psutka (Egyptrixx) and Jeremy Greenspan (Junior Boys), out March 3rd via Hand Drawn Dracula.

“Nailbiter makes sludgy experimental electro with shades of industrial and a pinch of gothiness. “Smeared” is a short song with a sense of impending doom, and though the sounds are cacophonous, it is still melodious and beat-driven.” ~ SILENT SHOUT

“a moody, threatening sonic vibe” ~ EXCLAIM!

TASSEOMANCY “Smashes Up Condo City In The Trippy Do Easy Video (directed by Zak Tatham)” via THE FADER.
Purchase Limited Canadian Only Clear Vinyl Version of Do Easy HERE.

“While writing ‘Do Easy,’ we were interested in manifesting the domestic flow of William Burroughs’s, The Discipline of DE. In Zak Tatham’s video, this domestic order is overthrown; chaos reigns and we break on through to a more instinctual side.” ~ THE FADER
