Californian band Deafheaven have started to stream their new album, ‘Ordinary Corrupt Human Love’ today (July 5).
The follow up to 2015’s ‘Bermuda’, the new album has seven songs and is an hour in length. You can listen to the album in full via NPR.
Earlier this year, the quintet shared a new track, ‘Honeycomb’ together with a 12-minute long video which included footage of skateboarding against panoramic, seaside snapshots.
Describing the track, NME said: “As visceral as ever, ‘Honeycomb’ sees the Californians black metallers hurtling through an onslaught of unforgiving noise, George Clark’s vocals grating up against pummelling drums.”
“Around a third of the way in, the band switch gears dramatically. Veering away from darkness for a second, the track touches on yowls of glam rock, and the angular crashes of Bloc Party. As the track peters out, there’s even a flicker of Sigur Ros theatricality.”
We are excited to share the entirety of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love with everyone. Thank you for the support and for taking the time to listen to the album. You are so appreciated. https://t.co/w1Lx3rUtTe
