Pretty Much Amazing

An unexpectedly weird, inventive and invigorating album that sounds absolutely nothing like The Strokes, and for that reason alone you should be really excited, and maybe even a little hopeful, to give this record a spin.

Rolling Stone

This isn't music to hook up to – it rarely even makes much sense. It's the sound of a man shedding his skin. Not pretty, but more compelling for it.

“Tyranny”, el apocalipsis según Julian Casablancas. The Voidz expanden en su primer álbum el sonido del “Phrazes For The Young” (2009). Experimentación, estridencia y psicodelia, se funden con las guitarras y sintetizadores que acompañan a la, a veces, robotizada voz de un Casablancas melancólico y furioso. "Human Sadness" te enamorará.
