Please note: Unlike the albums from Kings Of Frog Island and Land Mammal the plant did NOT mess up this release. These records have already been pressed, so a timely release and delivery is guaranteed!
Godless is a collimation of ideas and experiences, bedded in what can only be described as "the next evolution" of Devil Electric's sound.
While keeping true to the band's DNA - you'll still find the heavy grooves of 70's inspired hard rock - Godless takes it one step further by peeling back to a more LoFi sound, a credit to producer Julian Schweitzer who worked with the band on Godless.
There is also a level of stylistic experimentation on the album, peppered through the familiar Devil Electric tones, that emerged in the freedom of the studio. You will be hit with these moments, unchained and lyrical, in songs like Your Guess Is As Good As Mine and I Will Be Forgotten. In others, like Take the Edge Off, there is the familiarity of Devil Electric's debut album but progressed and twisted to new tonal shapes and raw melodic edges.
Lyrically, Godless took inspiration from Pierina's bookshelf with songs All My Friends Move Like The Night, Mindset and The Cave paying homage to Plato, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Joe Hill and Paul Tremblay.
She keeps pace with the band but never misses the chance to bring the signature big sweeping melodic vocals she has become known for.
Godless is not over-thought and at times it's raw as hell - but that's the point.
