Death Lust: Out Now, U.S. Girls + Alvvays Make Polaris Shortlist, Calpurnia on Jimmy Kimmel

July 23, 2018

Chastity released their debut album, "Death Lust" on Friday July 13th. 

 

 

The Low Down on "Death Lust"

 

"An artist with the versatility to work in dramatically different modes, from brittle bedroom indie pop to stormy shoegaze to raging post-hardcore ... the beauty of Death Lust lies in how Williams makes them all sound like part of the same continuum of disaffection, and how he approaches each mode with a pop songwriter’s ear for concision." - Pitchfork

 

"A concept album charting an arc from despair and isolation to community-minded conviction, with songs logging sonic references to scenes and genres like shoegaze, noise rock and hardcore; tracks like "Negative With Reason To Be" lift liberally from Deftones, but they're also marked with an emotional depth and artful dynamic shifts that speak for themselves." - Exclaim!

 

"From its macabre song titles – Choke, Scary, Suffer, Anoxia – to its overarching lyrical obsession with mortality, Williams has composed an album full of violence, dread and claustrophobia that somehow gives you catharsis in the end ... As harrowing as it can be, it’s transcendent rock music that feels unparalleled so far this year." - Now Magazine

We're incredibly excited to announce U.S. Girls and Alvvays have both made the Polaris Prize short list, for their albums, "In A Poem Unlimited" and "Antisocialites," respectively. 

 

Meg Remy (U.S. Girls) had a invigorating conversation with Rolling Stone about the evolution of her sound, and sharpening her political critique. Read the whole piece here.
