HEALTH – “Stonefist”
Synthetic noise-rockers HEALTH are returning this summer with Death Magic, their first LP in six years. We’ve already heard one single, the harrowing “New Coke,” and new song “Stonefist” is equally oppressive. It stomps you right in the face with some punishing bursts of noise before pulling back once the vocals kick in, with icily pretty electronics soundtracking a delightfully upbeat refrain of “We both know love’s not in our hearts.” It builds back up from there into something harsh but surprisingly danceable, a pulsating club banger for masochists. Listen below.
Death Magic is out 8/7 via Loma Vista.
