About The Black Angels

The best music reflects a wide-screen view of the world back at us, helping distill the universal into something far more personal.

Says vocalist/bassist Alex Maas, “a big focal point of this record is just the overall insanity that’s happening. What’s true?

Side 2 kicks off with  80’s  synth-pop  track  ‘Fracture’  and  haunting  after-hours  minimal wave ‘Payoff,’ while  ‘Station’ and album closer ‘Party’s Over’ deal with disillusionment and conquering one’s indifference to make real change.   

The album creates order from chaos and delves into escapism, isolation, relationship conflicts, and  decay.  With nods to William S.
