“A Katy Perry song hits harder than a hard rock song now,” HEALTH frontman Jake Duzsik says. Yes, he’s being serious. What kind of rock musician says this? What if we told you his band made one of 2015’s must-hear albums?
HEALTH have had it with boring rock bands. That’s why they set out to craft the apex of a modern, heavy guitar music with this year’s Death Magic. Maybe (like us) you thought it was a masterwork of pummeling hooks and skull-rattling breakdowns, pushed past the rock frontier by Haxan Cloak and Kanye West’s engineer, Andrew Dawson. Maybe you thought it sounded a lot like Nine Inch Nails. Regardless, it’s a must-listen (or re-listen) after you’ve heard the band on this week’s Alt In Our Stars podcast.
