HEALTH “Get Color” (2009)

October 23, 2011

Have you ever wondered if there is any connection between band’s name and music they play? Because in case of HEALTH it seems to be highly appropriate. Indeed, one has to be fit as a fiddle to play such demanding music (electronic noise rock to be specific). On the other hand, HEALTH play extra loud, aggressive and primal tracks for those not concerning about the hearing damage. The band are the musical equivalent of a mad surgeon that’s gonna cut your body into pieces while having the time of his life. In Death+ you can hear his scalpel. The main single Die Slow is an industrial disco that finds the right mix of guitars, drums and computer beats. This is a dance of those not scared to break some bones. Nice Girls quickly morphs into a tribal semi-chant. In Violet is a perfect closer leaving you wanting more. Jake Duzsik does a great job as the singer, he’s a half-present phantom whose voice sinisterly floats above the songs.
