Iconic musician, poet and visual artist Alan Vega was an uncompromising visionary. “Fist“, from his forthcoming lost album Mutator, due April 23rd via Sacred Bones Records, is the second piece to be unveiled from the Vega Vault.
Of the single, frequent collaborator and partner Liz Lamere reveals, “Fist’s relentless forward movement of the music coupled with Vega’s battle cry lyrics makes it a powerful call for action to the people to muster their power, come together and Make One Nation. The message is timely, the impact timeless.”
Listen to “Fist” below:
Vega’s close friend and confidante, Jared Artaud who helped mix and produce Mutator tells, “Alan Vega was an architect of sound. ‘Fist’ reveals the album’s archetypal sonic framework of balancing intensity with calm. Music you can meditate to or blast during a protest march. Vega was a champion of the underdog. His lyrics inspire strength for the individual to rise up and destroy those destroying us. Fist sets ‘Mutator’ into motion with Vega’s ‘no notes’ mantra and blistering poetic truths that balance a dark vision with hope.”
