Night Shade new VAZUM single
Night Shade is the new single from Detroit deathgaze duo VAZUM. Released Friday, January 13th Night Shade is a kinetic deathrock song exploring themes of infatuation, obsession and spite. In the modern doom scrolling culture of influencer worship, the lines blur between fan and stalker. Night Shade is told from the perspective of escaping an abusive relationship; ‘never to meet again / might as well be dead / pretend, pretend, pretend / we’re such good friends’. With Night Shade comes the b-side Living Great, which speaks of the detachment and apathy that accompanies privilege and wealth. Both songs were written and recorded by VAZUM during Winter 2022, while working on their next full-length album which will be released in March 2023 with a US tour to follow in April.

The forthcoming album was created in an old military squash court turned studio and came about during the start of the war in Ukraine and the overwhelming feeling of helplessness that surrounded him. “We realized then that nothing will ever be, no matter how far away you feel from something that’s happening in the world, independent from the suffering out there. It was a hard realization but we needed to figure out a way to deal with it. Listening to the whole album reminded me of holding a seed in my hands. It felt like the start of something and symbolized birth in times of chaos. The song and the album, we decided, had to be called nothing more and nothing less – The Seed,” states M.
