Thalia Zedek is an unparalleled voice in rock music. Her music straddles the line between intimate and visceral. Zedek has received wide acclaim for her intense vocal performances and guitar playing in past projects Come, Uzi, Live Skull, and most recently her new trio E with Gavin McCarthy (Karate) and Jason Sidney Sanford (Neptune). Since the dissolution of Come, Zedek has focused her solo efforts on more vulnerable, stripped back arrangements. Her new album Fighting Season combines the grit of her past with the fragility of her solo releases, spinning tales of discord and struggle from the personal to the political and featuring performances by old friends Chris Brokaw (Come) and J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.). Through her exceptional songwriting and performances, Thalia Zedek’s fervent passion can be felt more than ever on Fighting Season, from blustering swirls of dissonance to hushed whispers.
STILL NO is a duo guitar and voice project from Patrick Dahn and Sami Fitz. Skimming the subconscious, the duo’s minimal setup allows them to dive into the unexpected - blurring genres and styles. Their music could be described as “the easiest way to lucid dream as someone else.”
Patrick Dahn is a London-based guitarist. His minimal, dissonant playing is inspired as much by Loren Connors, as by abstract painting, as by a tree. A rock.
Sami Fitz is a London-based vocalist whose work explores the boundaries of narratives. Her latest solo project, Tephra, was released in 2018 and produced by multi-instrumentalists Shahzad Ismaily and Aaron Roche.
