I write this with a heavy mournful heart, but the somber sounds of the ZVI song “Dear Pink” is giving me the power I need to move forward. This song not only gives me chills, it gives me strength. Is the song heavy? The answer would be yes, in it’s own special way! Ron Varod (Kayo Dot, Psalm Zero, Sabbath Assembly, etc) has created one of the most moving records of 2019, which is why we feel so honored to be sharing with you this amazing video for “Dear Pink” below was created by Emily Harris. This record is sonic proof that music has the power to build and destroy. ZVI’s music is making me feel human again!
“After we laid down some guitars and synths during the first sessions for this record, Randall (Dunn) suggested doing some drum programming at home before we got together again.When I thought about how I wanted to approach the beats I started having flashbacks to me as a teen, sitting at home drawing comic books listening to the Lost Highway and Spawn movie soundtracks in my room. I got way back into 90s Trip Hop and Electronica and used that as a jumping off point for fleshing out the album.”
