Azari & III
AZARI & III (LTD TRANSPARENT 2LP)
Turbo Recordings brings you a special 10-year anniversary repress of Azari & III’s classic self-titled debut album. Limited pressing on transparent double vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve.
Torontonian quartet, Azari & III have announced their debut self-titled album on Turbo Recordings / Loose Lips Records / Modular. It follows the release of the single >Hungry For The Power<, which erupted a storm of awe on the underground music scene, and a collaborative track >Stay Here< with Friendly Fires in 2010. The record is set to become the sound of a dystopian summer with their innately brooding beat and sordid-pop edge.
Azari & IIIs unique blend of moody electronica, dark yet hooky vocal choruses and analog-thick rhythms has earned them a hardcore following and sees this album as one of the most-anticipated in the calendar. The four-piece, consisting of producer/musicians Dinamo Azari and Alixander III with vocalists Fritz Helder and Starving Yet Full, have crafted a defining sound that relishes in its references while maintaining a future perspective.
From the velvety refrains of >Reckless With Your Love< through to the creeping melancholy of >Manhooker< and the unhinged technopera of >Undecided<, their album possesses an individual classic-future feel, with trademark lush synthesizations, biting soulful choruss and ominous overtones.
