Noisy trio ADVAETA unveils single "Church Cult" from upcoming LP

As you can gather from their streaming single, NYC noise rock trio Advaeta isn't too concerned with pleasing the average music lover, choosing to cater to the faithfuls of the rock genre genre that takes tension and dissonance to its extreme. The band, active for more than 5 years in the NYC underground, will be releasing their new album "Death And The Internet" on local label Fire Talk at the end of the month. The unveiled three singles from it, which seem to add a dreamy vocal element to their droney and abrasive wall of guitars: "Angelfish," streaming below, "Hazel Blue Eyes," and "Church Cult," recently premiered on Stereogum.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Psych Rock songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!


Noisy NYC band on the rise: ADVAETA - live at Silent Barn tomorrow (07.29)

Noise-rock trio ADVAETA utilizes a static-ridden ambience to create otherworldly sonic soundscapes.  On "Gold Thought Exit" (streaming) we are acquainted with Amanda Salane's voice, a presence as strong as the expansive atmosphere that surrounds them.  Her vocals are in part reminiscent of Andrya Ambro of Talk Normal (a band we featured on the cover of the 22nd issue of The Deli back in 2010); both feature an attitude that seems to add extra layers of meaning to what is happening lyrically or sonically.  The band's energy is remarkably original and daring, and among the wash of reverb and distortion, complexities are revealed through dissonant melodies and creative structures. You can see ADVAETA live tomorrow (07.29) at The Silent Barn. - Jake Saunders
