San Francisco’s top post-metal outfit Deafheaven have just released the second track off of their upcoming album Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, which releases on July 13 through Anti- Records. Following on the heels of the first single, “Honeycomb“, the newest single “Canary Yellow” will be the lengthiest track on the record, clocking in at just over twelve minutes.
Where “Honeycomb” kicked right into Deafheaven‘s iconic brand of blackened post-metal, “Canary Yellow” takes its time, opening with a couple of minutes of Explosions In The Sky-esque guitar interplay. By the time George Clarke’s screams and drummer Daniel Tracy’s double kick meet up with the flow of melodic octave chords, you have a song that is slightly less dark than “Honeycomb”, yet wholly identifies as standard operating procedure for Deafheaven. Again with this track, the raw and organic recording style only positively adds to the effect of what the band strives to accomplish. A jazzy clean section at the eight minute-mark, subsequent guitar solo, and clean vocals hovering in the background add a nice bit of variety to the song. With two tracks off of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love now released, longtime Deafheaven fans should be excited for another solid album! Check out “Canary Yellow” below!
Just in case you still didn’t know, the band will be touring North America and Europe later this year. There are a LOT of shows on deck!
