“The ostensible soundtrack for the apocalypse.” – Dusted
“…subverting the lines between noise-rock, metal, and the electronic avant-garde with aural assaults that render those distinctions irrelevant.” – Pop Matters
“…stirs your overall senses, redefining what it means to play heavy music that straddles a very thin line with noise and cacophony.” – The 1st Five
Dynamic noise duo White Suns will release their intense fourth album, Psychic Drift, on June 16th. Today, the band has premiered the album’s challenging second single, “Pilgrim,” via New Noise Magazine.
Following the deconstructed rock instrumentation of their 2014 album Totem, White Suns continue their inexorable plunge into sonic abstraction. Psychic Drift consists of four long-form compositions where synthesizers, field recordings, cut-up samples and lurching rhythms form a tapestry of shifting layers. The focus here is on texture and atmosphere, utilizing repurposed aspects of drone, industrial and harsh noise to create claustrophobic soundscapes that ripple and groan.
