Soul Feeder @ZDB – Lisboa 11 February 2023
7777 の天使 (PT)
7777 の天使 is the project composed of Swan Palace and DRVGジラ, where the grip of sculpted percussion comes as easy as it is complex. A wave of violent hits tears through but never imposes itself over the delicate harmonised vocals, drenched in almost weaponised auto-tune. These sounds are a call to the heart, no matter how loud and piercing the noise can get, like any song sung out of truth, it resonates with this world and perhaps the next.
