INSECT ARK - New Album Out This Month, Two Tracks Available For Streaming

New York City/Portland-based all female instrumental duo Insect Ark will unleash their new album entitled Marrow Hymns via Profound Lore Records on 23rd February. With Marrow Hymns Insect Ark brings an alluring fusion of horror-film soundtracks, psychedelic doom, and atmospheric noise. Comprised of Dana Schechter (M. Gira's Angels Of Light, Wrekmeister Harmonies, Zeal & Ardor, Gnaw) and Ashley Spungin (Taurus, Purple Rhinestone Eagle, Negative Queen), Insect Ark's intensely visual music weaves interludes of fragile beauty with crushing passages of swirling doom, spinning like a backwards fever dream.
Marrow Hymns is a wordless song, a hypnotic voice that screams and whispers from a place deep in the furrows, from the bones, from the blood. Defying easy categorization, Insect Ark's uncommon sound is in part the amalgamation of these two women's passions: Schechter's sinister bass lines and unconventional use of lap steel guitar (and her complete omission of electric guitar), and Spungin's lucid, exacting drumming and synth work with her own hand-built analog noise pedals (Ormus Electronics). Two tracks, "Sea Harps" and "Skin Walker", are available for streaming in the player below. Link
