Efrim Manuel Menuck & Kevin Doria: are SING SINCK, SING

Efrim Menuck (GY!BE, Silver Mount Zion) and Kevin Doria (Growing, Total Life) toured in support of the former’s solo album Pissing Stars, and they ended up forging a new project which distills their respective sounds into a form of existentialist protest music constructed using maximalist electronics. The songs hinge around themes such as not trusting the cops (opener “Do the Police Embrace?” threads an ominous police siren throughout its alarming electro-drone) and standing strong and refusing to back down. Menuck’s vocals maintain a weary but persevering tone, and the music is like tall, vibrating towers of light transmitting radiations of hope for miles around. There’s no crescendos, it never reaches a crashing peak and there’s no hangover-like comedown. This brief album is just the beginning, promising grander things from this duo.
