Tadzio hit the ground running with their propulsive new track "A Pure and Radiant Joy" off their upcoming new album "That Cold Grey Light" via Post-trash.
“The music for “Pure and Radiant Joy,” much like several of the songs off the new album, emerged fully formed without much mental gymnastics. Ben and I were working on arranging a live version of our rendition of “Death and The Lady” when I began playing this rapid ostinato on the harmonium for several minutes. Ben came up with a blistering bass line and we played it for twenty minutes straight until both our hands were bleeding. Suffice to say, the rest of the ensemble was not pleased about the idea of changing “Death and The Lady” to such a degree. Instead, that physically torturous motif became its own song. We wanted this song to be a foray into new sonic territory for group, from a production-heavy collective of musicians to a unified band playing together in real time. Dan Angel (Ugh God!, Sun Organ, Sandcastle) recorded the song and beat the living hell out of his set on a muggy day in late September, 2019. - Ross Lipton
