New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the exclusive track premiere of “Aware” by DEZORAH. The track features a tremendously steady rhythmic pattern that centers the syncopated assault. Other melodies sway over top, including the drifting vocal approach. The song’s back half ascends into a steady build that crashes with a quick burst of energy, taking the song to a winding end. The track is off of the upcoming EP Creando Azul, out May 25th.
““Aware” is about a waking dream I once had. I dreamt that I was sinking into the ocean, all around me was blue. As I sunk further down, I felt a calmness start to grow within me, like all the blue was cleansing the anxiety that permeated my core. I woke up and I immediately wanted to go back to that feeling. I wanted to purge the mess I felt inside and find my way back to blue. This song reflects that conflict I faced between finally finding the hope towards healing and being aware of the constant urge to regress into negative thoughts.” – Danica Salazar of DEZORAH
DEZORAH is a post progressive band from McAllen, TX. Formed in 2014 by guitarist Eric Martinez and vocalist Danica Salazar, the duo joined forces shortly after with drummer Trey Puga, bassist Daven Martinez and guitarist Jonathan Garza to released their first EP in 2016 titled Tierra Eterna. In the years to come, the bands musical style has evolved to feature aggressive, charging drums and bass, distorted and melodic guitars and a blend of gloomy and eager vocal melodies that reflect high energy and burying anxiety. These elements and more are explored in the bands upcoming sophomore release titled Creando Azul. The five song EP was produced and mixed by Audio Engineer Alex Bhore at Elmwood Studio in Dallas, TX and mastered by Mastering Engineer Sarah Register in New York, NY. Creando Azul is scheduled for release in May 2018 followed by extensive touring both regionally and nationally.
Notable acts DEZORAH has directly supported include SPARTA, Le Butcherettes, Xenia Rubinos, and have also been featured in festivals with acts such as Downtown Boys, Helado Negro, and Power Trip.
