Today, Richmond, VA’s .GIFFROMGOD unveiled their latest EP, “Digital Red,” through Prosthetic Records. This new offering from the grindcore sextet marks their return after four years since their debut album, “approximation_of_a_human,” and features a collection of narratives centered around shattered dreams and restless days.
.GIFFROMGOD’s ever evolving sonic palette and disparate influences sees the band incorporating further electronic elements in the form of acid and noise, offering a glance into what’s in store for the band’s next chapter. Tracks such as the cow’s meow and dream futures bristle with nervous energy and discordant freneticism, complimenting Digital Red’s overarching themes of dread, whilst also giving way to counterpoint passages of reprieve and serenity.
.GIFFROMGOD continue to pair tongue-in-cheek humour with a knowingly wry smile alongside collective responsibility and care towards the communities they exist in – with the group working alongside Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project, a grass roots organisation and abortion fund based in Richmond dedicated to reproductive justice in Virginia.
Across Digital Red’s 18 minute runtime .GIFFROMGOD utilise every second available to exorcise their somnolent fears and expunge real world anxieties, all the while with hopeful eyes cast toward better futures.
