Deer Pink, the new album by ZVI, the solo project of NYC-based multi-instrumentalist Ron Varod, known for his roles in Kayo Dot, Sabbath Assembly, Psalm Zero, So Is The Tongue, and more, is set to be issued this week through Nefarious Industries. New Noise is streaming it here first!
“The initial ideas for this record are absolutely made from the palette that I’ve developed for myself while working with my peers in Kayo Dot, Psalm Zero, and Sabbath Assembly over the past few years,” says Varod. “After we did basic tracks, I approached it like a remix album where I took very dry, minimal, gothy guitar/synth songs and programmed drums to satisfy the 90s trip-hop itch I’ve been thinking of scratching for close to 20 years but never got to ’til Deer Pink.”
While previous ZVI material can be interpreted as a minimal, experimental drone twist on the traditional singer/songwriter, 2019 ushers in a new era of experimentation with the Randall Dunn-produced Deer Pink.
