Electro-spiritual project Varick unveils new single Surrender

Deeply spiritual and tortured at once, NYC's electronic one man band project Varick is back with a new track that combines goth influences with EDM, synth pop and industrial. A song about "surrendering your ego in order to find a deeper meaning within yourself." Surrender (streaming below) well exemplifies Varick's interpretation of music and creativity as mediums towards the search for a deeper life balance, where catharses - here in the form of occasional explosions of distorted guitars - can be as enlightening as the contemplation expressed in the thoughtful lyrics. The single will be part of Varick debut full length album, entitled Veda I, to be released on September 9th.


Varick unveils video for single 'Boundless'

With its references to 2001: A Space Odissey's monolith, Mulholland Drive's mysterious key, and Monsters Inc.'s door that opens to a different place (ok, there were a bunch of the last two, but hey...), the video of Brooklyn's electronic one-man-band Varick for single "Boundless" manages to quote three of the best movies EVER in less than a minute! The song is a very well produced atmospheric electronic track reminiscent of a dronier and more epic version of early múm mixed with Radiohead and electro influences. Varick's emotional alto ties together a track where disparate layers, consisting in a variety of drones, pulsing synths and other electronic sounds, overlap on top of each other, building slowly and progressively towards a chorus so charged and dense that things for a second almost sound like hite noise. Varick isn't here for the fun, but for the intensity and for the contemplation of life's mysteries, and this song/video combo is a very well crafted expression of his musical existentialism.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Electronic songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
