You may remember a few years ago AJ Lambert, who is the daughter of Nancy Sinatra, released a tribute album to her grandfather Frank Sinatra that featured Protomartyr guitarist Greg Ahee. They've now formed a new project, Bloodslide, that also includes Preoccupations drummer Mike Wallace. Collaborating with producer Sonny DiPerri (Protomartyr, Diiv, Animal Collective) and Ommatidium Studios, Bloodslide is conceptualized as a multimedia project, both music and visual art.
An EP is due out in July and they've just shared the first single, "Pica." You can hear a little of Protomartyr and Preoccupation's tense, post-punk styles here, with layers of distorted, atmospheric guitars and huge crashing drums, but Lambert's smoky vocals pull "Pica" into new territory. The striking video, made by Ommatidium Studios, is as intense as the song, featuring morphing landscapes, metallic skeletal images, and lasers. It's intense (and carries a strobe warning.)
