We all know Ada Rook for being half of the good and mysterious Canadian duo Black Clothes, who’re apparently nonetheless damaged up regardless that they launched the album Overlook Your Personal Face final yr. That’s two full-length albums since Black Clothes introduced their breakup in 2020, so who is aware of. Rook additionally launched her solo LP 2,020 Knives in 2020, and she or he’s appeared on a couple of Backxwash tracks. Now, Rook is one half of one other duo, and so they’ve simply dropped a wild debut album on is.
The brand new band Angel Electronics is the duo of Ada Rook and Ash Nerve, an LA-based musician and producer who’s a member of the Oracle, a manufacturing group that labored on Rook’s 2,020 Knives album. In Angel Electronics, Ash Nerve is the lead singer, although each Nerve and Rook contribute vocals and manufacturing. However the true information with Angel Electronics’ debut album Extremely Paradise isn’t the names of the folks concerned; it’s the freaky and disorienting sound of the factor.
Speaking to Bandcamp, the members of Angel Electronics describe their sound as “brutal euphoria wave.” Mainly, they take a frantic, synthesized tackle harsh, juddering metalcore, and so they mix that with the sweetest, catchiest types of bubblegum pop. Some moments on Extremely Paradise remind me of 100 gecs, and others remind me of Andrew WK. It’s sensory-overload music, music that captures a sure giddy confusion. Stream the album under.
The self-released Extremely Paradise is out now, and you will get it at Bandcamp.
