Azar Swan

Zohra Atash and Josh Strawn have disbanded/retired Religious to Damn and have reconfigured their sonic matrix as Azar Swan which is a decidedly more electronic project while retaining that gothy vibe. Azar Swan have just released their first track to the world, "Amrika," and you can stream that below.

Azar Swan will be making their live debut at The Flat on November 10 which will also serve as the official afterparty for the Tamaryn/Starred show at Knitting Factory earlier that night. Tamaryn will DJ along with Silent Drape Runners. $5 gets you in the door and the party starts at 11 PM. Flyer for the show (designed by Weekend's Shaun Durkan) is below.

True story:

Walked by these 2 on the street in NY today, had no idea who they were until I saw their pic here just now...

They were emanating total dead seriousness...in fact, their serious vibes almost blew my head clean off...

Dude was that strange combo of ultra-serious while partly, eyes-squinting confused.

Chick was all just "get outta my way, i AM AZAR SWAN (formerly Religious To Damn"...who?) serious.

Bottomline:

My mellow had officially been harshed.

(Though bonus points to dude for getting away with totally checking out another chick in the band's own press photo up there.)

"Walked by these 2 on the street in NY today"- written by someone who clearly spends a lot of time in "NY."

clealy we needed ANOTHER swan themed band

but really.
if you cannot realize that SWANS is the reason bands don't meander to this word for naming rights, then quit playing music.

This band is great live and on record. Haters to the left, as my main man Kenneth Parcells would say.
