TAR137 Piggy Black Cross - Always Just Out Of R.E.A.C.H.
(Robotic Eclosion After Coming Hylozoic)
Drawing on their experience in a variety of genres including IDM, post industrial, jazz, hardcore punk, ethereal wave and popular music, Bridget Bellavia and Toby Driver have created a body of work that defies classification. Driver, a prolific avant-garde composer takes the reigns with a densely electronic compositional work. Bellavia, a vocalist, songwriter, and visual artist tells tales of the human condition, authoritarian machination and lyrical horror such as with the tale of the haunted glove in Psygh Øn Raindom ÆllÆy. Bellavia draws from literature, film and art to create vocal melodies and lyrics as well as visuals for live shows. From astral projection to supernatural manipulation, Driver draws on countless caliginous forces to fashion unpredictable and somber arrangements. Piggy Black Cross is a tumultuous yet harmonious project that will stir the inmost affection.
"Melds the saturated sci-fi atmospheres of synthwave with glitchy electronica, unorthodox compositions, and just a squirt of the sultriest goth. The beats are sparse but tricky, the moods continually shifting from numinous to dystopian, and the rarely repeated vocal phrasings conjure eros and loss and everything in between." - Toilet ov Hell, Top Albums of 2018
"Pounding relentless energy articulated via a collection of inner engines with continually shifting gears. By far the most exhilarating and ecstatic [albums] I’ve heard all year." - 5against4, Best Albums of 2018
