Joalz – Hello Darkness My Friend [SCRIBE001]

Two years after the release of Monkshood LP, Joalz returns with new recordings. ‘Hello Darkness My Friend’ it is a four song E.P featuring actress & singer Mary Tsoni, known for her play at the Oscar nominated film ‘Dogtooth’. The band here interferes the psychedelic side of its rock influence from the early Krautrock days of Amon Duul. The Can, Faust & Aphrodite’s Child. A balanced conflict between basses, guitars, electronic analoq synthesis & Mary Tsoni’s theatrical performance, leads to a darker but more extrovert sound. The E.P starts with ‘Oh darlin’ Margaret’, low frequencies scapes, meets guitars drones, while the delusional Mary’s performance accompanied by thereminist May Roosevelt. Keeping the same ingredients in Jay Hawkins ‘ Alligator wine ‘ lyrics cover, Mary Tsoni dares to compete her voodoo hero with a creepy and yet stunning interpretation. Haunted by the words of Daphne Richardson writing ‘ Outspoken you are ‘ it’s a talk-style song. A monster bass & a tight drum set enticingly wanders through Dimitris Zografos guitars. ‘Text 1018’ with a repeated bass, the crawling whispers & a raw guitar melody chained with the ms20 synth, pleasantly shrinks your room.
