Azar Swan - “Amrika”
Brooklyn duo Azar Swan revealed their debut track “Amrika” last week on USA Today, unveiling the re-imagined project’s new sound and announcing their first live show In NYC.
Formerly the core members of sprawling, orchestral goth project Religious To Damn, Zohra Atash and Joshua Strawn changed gears early this year, turning their once instrumental ensemble into a drum machine minded, electro-centric duo. The shift was sparked by a two-fold realization from Atash and Strawn who were looking to consolidate the project, with coordinating multiple musicians often slowing the writing and performing process, combined with a mutual revived interest in electronic music and hip-hop beats pulling influences from acts like The-Dream and These New Puritans.
