Beauty and ugliness. Joy and horror. Soft and hard. Love and fear. Life is what happens in the gray area between humanity’s great dichotomies. It’s in the struggle toward one and the other that makes our existence so bittersweet, and it’s also the perfect fodder for musical creativity.
Slander calls upon these forces on his latest EP ‘Duality,’ out today on Mad Decent. Its two original tracks are light and dark. “Love Again” feat. WAVS lingers like romance, while “Dead” hits hot like a fever. Thrashing guitars versus angelic vocals. Which is your favorite?
The EP also features three remixes for each song. NGHTMRE, YOOKIE, and Say My Name tackle the hard stuff. Adam K, Parianoid, and WAVS take on the good vibes. Listen to Duality below.
