Post Death Soundtrack Stir Intrigue With Latest Single
Last year we came across a Canadian inter-city music collective by the name of Post Death Soundtrack. Consisting of Kenneth Buck, Steve Moore and Jon Ireson, PDS have caught our attention with their critically acclaimed brand of industrial-tinged psychedelic rock. Founded in Calgary in 2007 by Buck and Moore, the band now operates out of Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto using the magic of the internet to collaborate across the country. The group creates thought-provoking music by weaving together electronic, industrial, pop and rock sounds. The result is an unbridled and unabashed brand of mind-bending rock.
Fresh taken from their full-length The Unlearning Curve, “Transform In White Light” is the latest single from Post Death Soundtrack. Rife with this Canadian trio’s trademark indignation, “Transform In White Light” builds an incredible amount of kinetic tension with gorgeous soundscapes and a cinematic flair.
On September 16, 2008, founding members Buck and Moore released Post Death Soundtrack’s debut full length album Music as Weaponry. Taking influence from bands like Massive Attack and Skinny Puppy, Music as Weaponry earned top reviews from publications such as Industrial.org, Side-line Magazine and Sphere Magazine who called the record “a chaotic concoction of crossover madness” adding “this is the soundtrack to your escape from the average”. Their popular cover of Dead Can Dance’s “Anywhere Out Of The World” was met with praise overseas in Europe.
In 2010, Post Death Soundtrack released their single “Ultraviolence” with an accompanying video, directed by Jeevin Johal. Along with the release of new music (“Little Alice’ and “Our Time Is Now”) and a series of remixes, the band assembled for a rare live performance opening for industrial pioneers Front Line Assembly.
Post Death Soundtrack stand apart from the pack with a long and menacing arm. Happy to remind their audience of the dark and deranged aspects of life, PDS thrive on creating am unnerving yet intriguing sonic dissonance that you can not help but fall victim to.
