wo years after the release of Monkshood LP, Joalz returns with new recordings. Hello darkness my friend it is a four song E.P featuring actress & singer Mary Tsoni, known for her play at the Oscar nominated film Dogtooth . The band here interferes the psychedelic side of its rock influence from the early Krautrock days of Amon Duul. The Can, Faust & Aphrodites Child.
A balanced conflict between basses, guitars, electronic analoq synthesis & Mary Tsonis theatrical performance, leads to a darker but more extrovert sound. The E.P starts with Oh darlin' Margaret , low frequencies scapes, meets guitars drones, while the delusional Marys performance accompanied by thereminist May Roosevelt. Keeping the same ingredients in Jay Hawkins Alligator wine lyrics cover, Mary Tsoni dares to compete her voodoo hero with a creepy and yet stunning interpretation. Haunted by the words of Daphne Richardson writing Outspoken you are its a talk-style song. A monster bass & a tight drum set enticingly wanders through Dimitris Zografos guitars. Text 1018 with a repeated bass, the crawling whispers & a raw guitar melody chained with the ms20 synth, pleasantly shrinks your room. JOALZ new e.p comes with 2 hd video clips. Oh darling Margaret & Outspoken you are filmed in Athens & New York, by directors Dimitris Tsatsoulis & Spyros Dahlias. Recorded in Athens & Berlin, between March 2011 - June 2012. Mastered in Berlin by Cem Oral
