Mass Gothic’s Sup Goth EP is out now, and streaming in full on the Sub Pop YouTube channel.
The 5-song effort was recorded in New York this past spring, shortly after the release of Mass Gothic. Where the self-titled debut album chronicled the depths of depression, Sup Goth is the resulting catharsis. The EP is also a collaborative affair between Noel Heroux and partner / bandmate Jessica Zambri, as it is the first Mass Gothic recording the pair have completed together.
Noel Heroux: “I followed my previously usually-ignored instinct to allow the noise and colour in my head to inform a specific, intentional sound as opposed to ‘throwing it all at the wall’ as I’ve done a thousand times before. It’s lyrically loose and conversational, informed by sonic landscape and stream of conscience. Jess approached her vocals similarly, although we hadn’t talked about it prior. We ended up with all these semi-hidden communications between us in the songs.”
