Melbourne musician Terror Joe has enlisted singer-songwriter Hollie Joyce on his new track, Dea. If you can’t wait to give the track a spin, listen to the song right here on MILKY before its release!
Recorded in isolation during last years lockdown, the track fuses together threads of psych, garage, punk and progressive rock, built upon distorted riffs and explosive drums whilst Joyce's haunting vocals soar above. The track was written and recorded remotely, with each musician working on their parts from their seperate home studios. Conceptually, the song was inspired by Joyce's research into the portrayal of powerful female figures in mythology and religion, and the inevitable characterisation they faced at the hands of the patriarchy.
Speaking to MILKY of the track, terror shares: “I have had the pleasure of collaborating with a whole lot of amazing artists via other projects over the years. This is the first time I have invited anyone into my personal project. Nobody I know has the kind of energy that Hollie does as an artist and performer and I am over the moon that she decided to work on the track with me. I love her work and love what she is about, so naturally I am proud of what this track has become. It’s been a long process getting it out into the world with the state of things, but hey, we got there.”
