Gig & Concert News - Earth Tongue Release New Single/Video 'Miraculous Death'

Earth Tongue Release New Single/Video 'Miraculous Death'

05 August 2022 - 0 Comments

Tāmaki-based two-piece Earth Tongue launch back into the riff-o-sphere with a new single and video ahead of their Aotearoa tour with fellow mosh-makers Dick Move.

The heavy psych duo of Gussie Larkin (vocals, guitar) and Ezra Simons (vocals, drums) manifest dizzying melodrama in Miraculous Death, Earth Tongue’s first new track since their debut LP Floating Being dropped in 2019. Crafted to distorted perfection between home and Karangahape Road studios, Miraculous Death launches into gear from thunderous first cymbal smash to heart-stopping, whiplash finish.

In bringing to life this fresh tempest of fuzz and horror, Earth Tongue recruited fellow guitar tone nerd and serial shredder Jonathan Pearce (The Beths). Harnessing the power of Pearce’s production magic and a Tascam 8-track tape machine, Miraculous Death conjures the timeless warmth of 70's drums a la King Crimson and Captain Beyond, while transporting listeners to a sinister othersphere for three and a half gut-punching minutes.

Diehard fans of Kubrick-era thrillers and classic horror tropes, Earth Tongue’s accompanying video for Miraculous Death is a masterclass in ominous slow zooms and gasp-worthy displays.

Shot at a velvet lined mansion and captured by Ezra on his French 16mm cinema camera and 1980's lenses, the pair haunt one another into madness in jaw-clenching, sword-wielding scenes of certain death.
