|Muscle And Marrow Love Limited Vinyl LP
Muscle and Marrow, formed in 2013, is Kira Clark (guitar, voice) and Keith McGraw (drums, samples). Their sound is surprisingly full, with either lush and drone like guitars or drastically fuzzed, as well as heavy drums. The songs, however, are powered by Clark's voice, soaringly operatic and high at times, while shaking and guttural at others. They are interested in the morose, the ugly, the jarring and the soft. They rely heavily on changing dynamics and avoid the linear, instead gravitating towards the clashing of sounds, their voice and drumming almost hypnotic at times, followed by sudden bursts of distorted noise and thrashing drums. They draw inspiration from literature, film, contemporary poetry, darkness with redemption and darkness without it, but their songs are at their core, deeply personal.
