BEAUTY TOOL – GODHEAD // HYG001

http://beautytool.net

Godhead, ygrade’s inaugural release, documents solitude, egotism, mania, depression, fear, joy, and light. While the music is an intensely personal reflection of the artist during the year 2016, it invokes an uncomfortable, uncanny, and impersonal distance between itself and the listener.

Ephemeral audio splices weave through each other resulting in an almost deliberately exhaustive poetic free-verse with continuous enjambment. Only fragmented moments of reprieve and self-reflection are left.

As it comes to a close Godhead shifts its gaze inward to reveal a grotesque caricature of mania.

RELEASED ON MAY 11, 2018.
