The result is 14 songs that are immediate and arresting, with both Tividad and Tucker offering two sides to the band through their shared vocals.
Stale Device has Tividad’s voice sitting above soaring guitars, while Tucker’s vocals are a near whisper on Chemical Freeze. An organ unites with dissonant guitars on the moody Minute In Your Mind before things shift gear on the stripped-back title track.
What Chaos Is Imaginary marks an exciting new chapter of sonic exploration for Girlpool, who impress not only with their versatility but also their humanity.
What Chaos Is Imaginary is out Feb 1 via ANTI-.
