Insect Ark by Rennie Elliot
New York/Portland noisy instrumental duo Insect Ark released their new full-length album, Marrow Hymns, this past February via Profound Lore, and earlier this week officially dropped the music video for their haunting track “Tarnish.” The new clip follows their previously released video for the single “Skin Walker.” Listen/watch both below.
A recently released press release describes Marrow Hymns as “an alluring fusion of horror-ﬁlm soundtracks, psychedelic doom, and atmospheric noise, INSECT ARK’s intensely visual music weaves interludes of fragile beauty with crushing passages of swirling doom, spinning like a backwards fever dream.”
Additionally, Insect Ark are on tour now in the US, having just performed a drone set at ‘Cemetary Soundscapes Fest’ in Salem, OR. The pairing will return to NY for the following gigs: Albany at Pauly’s Hotel (w/ Pandiscordian Necrogenesis, Foisy-Hardiman) on September 4 [TIX at the door], Brooklyn at Saint Vitus (w/ Queen Elephantine, Pandiscordian Necrogenesis) on September 6 [TIX], and Hudson at ‘Basilica Soundscape Fest‘ from September 14 – 16 [TIX].
