Detroit noise pop/alt/indie musician Zilched (aka Chloe Drallos) has unveiled her new single “Earthly Delights” and its accompanying video.
The track features on her sophomore album ‘Earthly Delights‘, due to be released next Friday, August 11 via Young Heavy Souls. Pre-order your copy here.
Across gothic pop slanted alt-rock twinged with elements of grunge, Zilched takes her uncompromising creative vision to new heights. The album acts as a love letter to life and its innermost complexities as Drallos explores the constant significance of love in all its forms.
Named after the iconic Northern Renaissance triptych by Hieronymus Bosch, the synth-filled anthemic title track is a redemptive narrative taking place in three perspectival realms and one in which Zilched finds celebration amidst seclusion and suffering.
Drallos says, “‘Earthly Delights’ is about reclaiming your sacred space in romance and realizing the space you’re sharing feels very wrong. When Eden feels like purgatory.” She continues, “I was fed up with loneliness but didn’t want my solitude taken. I felt as though I needed to reclaim what I deem sacred.”
Paired with a kaleidoscopic music video, Earthly Delights is a modernized take on post-punk and gothic pop music, featuring sullen vocals awash in layers of otherworldly synth.
