Drawing influences from a deep well of experience in past outfits, YLVA, hailing from Melbourne, Australia’s capital of underground music, will release their debut album, entitled Meta, on November 17th via Pelagic Records [pre-order].
Today we have the pleasure of premiere the first track off the band’s forthcoming album. “Metadata” is a glimpse of the extremely well-executed and refined mix of sludge and doom that these Aussies proudly display. The shortest track on the record, but nothing short of amazing with their unrelenting heaviness as well as a refreshingly dynamic sound and a very emotive manifestation. Check the track below and get excited for another amazing Autumn release.
“We have the ability to document, measure and learn from our social failures. We can achieve positive community development and social justice if the data is one day allowed to breathe from beneath and within”, comments guitarist / vocalist Mike Deslandes on the recurring theme throughout Meta. The album was recorded at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne, mixed by Mike Deslandes and mastered by Dav Byrne at Iridium Audio.
