New York City experimental death metal band York Factory Complaint just debuted their new song “Love”, the third song off their upcoming album Lost in Spectacle over at NPR, and it’s well worth a listen. As a band, York Factory Complaint is basically daring you to be into them. With a sound that mixes the aggression of hardcore and the repetition of avant-garde industrial, it’s pretty clear that they’re not making music to cater to as wide an audience as possible. But despite their anxiety-inducing intensity, there’s something compelling about York Factory Complaint. For further proof, just listen to “Love” or the two other tracks they’ve posted from their upcoming album, “Forgotten” and “Production”.
In listening to these songs, one thing becomes certain: this band is pure, 100% noise. Not a moment goes by in these songs that isn’t smothered in feedback, ear-splitting drones, and layers upon layers of distortion. But buried somewhere beneath all that distortion is something that puts you on edge, something that makes it compelling. It’s hard to describe, but you can find out for yourself by checking out the three songs that are up right now. You can also look for Lost in Spectacle when it comes out on Accidental Guest on July 16.
