HEALTH is a wild animal. I’ve never been able to pinpoint their sound completely. One minute it’s noisy. Another it’s ambient. It’s here. It’s there. It’s HEALTH. They have always been kind of like that band that you don’t hear much about, but when they release new music, you listen. As a result, they’ve always recieved a sort of respect from me.
This track “Tears” has made it’s way into the new Max Payne 3 game, and it’s not too common that happens with a group of underground noise-rockers. This song, with it’s pulsating bass synths and light vocals, puts forth an interesting contrast that basically sounds like an industrial factory has gone awry. But, you know, in a beautiful way. Who knew chaos could sound so beautiful?
