The track is HEALTH's first original music since last year's NOLIFE collaboration
The Los Angeles noise-rock band last released an album in 2015 with ‘Death Magic‘. In a four-star review, NME said: “‘Death Magic’ makes a grander statement than its more rudimentary predecessors. It sounds like Health finally know what they want.”
‘Mass Grave’ is the group’s first piece of original music since last year’s collaboration with NOLIFE, titled ‘Hard To Be A God’.
In a press release, the band said: “The annals of music history are filled with a rich tradition of trios. Crosby, Stills & Nash… Emerson, Lake, and Palmer… Lennon, McCartney, and that other guy… And now Soccer Mommy, the guy from Purity Ring, and HEALTH. We give you ‘MASS GRAVE’.” Listen to the track below now.
Soccer Mommy added: “I really enjoyed getting to work with the guys from HEALTH on this song. It’s one of the first features I’ve ever done and I love the finished product. It has a kind of apathetic sadness to it that I was really drawn to.”
Last year, HEALTH released a remix album called ‘DISCO3’, which featured reworkings of tracks from ‘Death Magic’ by the likes of Purity Ring, Preoccupations, Vessel, and more. The record also featured three new tracks.
Meanwhile, Soccer Mommy released her debut album ‘Clean‘ in March. In a four-star review, NME wrote: “Having established herself as one of America’s great young songwriters with this debut LP, [Soccer Mommy’s Sophie] Allison’s got the world at her feet – and we trust her to hit even harder next time around.”
