Both a new pinnacle for Vanderslice and the manifestation of a revelatory outlook Crystals 3.0 is a seamless 19-minute sequence of melodies so memorable they belong in an ice cream truck, static bursts so meticulous they belong on a Merzbow tribute, and beats so spring-loaded they belong on a trap record.

Following the release of Amplify and Lithium, Rodrig
Rose Haze- Slow Decay
While Kate Ramsey, frontwoman of Rose Haze, was at home visiting family in the midwest she felt called to work on a new tune while going through waves of nostalgia and deep reflection. She asked guitarist Ruben Gonzales to send her a few riffs, bass line, and drum beat. In her childhood bedroom, she wrote lyrics and synth parts around Gonzales’ parts and arranged a demo, which in its primitive form was much more ethereal and light. When introduced to the rest of the band and taken to the stage, the track naturally morphed into a darker and heavier track falling somewhere between dream pop and doom. Bassist Yoko Miyakawa’s undeniable sense of pulse brings a grooving yet sludgy undertone that locks in with drummer Dustin Coker’s deep kick and snare combo creating a sonic structure very reminiscent of the Cocteau Twins. “Slow Decay” is very much a shoegaze wall of sound cloaked in analog synth swells and sweeps, which is exactly what Gonzales and Ramsey do best over a rock solid rhythm section. The lyrics tell a story of the cycle of life and death from the lens of Ramsey contemplating whether she would ever have children and the future of humanity as a species. It’s a song of hope despite fears of the slow decay of our planet.
