Azusa, the band featuring Liam Wilson (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Christer Espevoll (Extol), David Husvik (Extol), and Eleni Zafiriadou (Sea + Air), have premiered a new video for the title track of their debut album “Heavy Yoke.” That effort will be released on November 16.
The band commented:
“The musical elements in ‘Heavy Yoke‘ are constantly challenging the song’s center line and balance point. While the acrobatic riffing insists on taking the tune off-track, the vocal lines add an anchoring sense of stability within the chaos. The opening riff is a precarious roller coaster and one of the more jarring, yet thrilling rides on the whole album. After the intro drop, the chorus catches you in a cushion of harmony, leaving you feeling secure and ready to take that ride again.”
“Thematically, ‘Heavy Yoke‘ deals with those unspeakable truths lurking in the subconscious mind. You can ignore them for a while, but sooner or later, they’ll haunt you in the night. When you finally wake yourself up and let the daylight in, its healing powers reveal universal truths, which bring clarity and relief.”
