New York/Portland instrumental duo, Insect Ark have released “Sea Harps” – a track taken from their upcoming album, Marrow Hymns. With the album set for release on Profound Lore Records on February 23rd, the curious pair seamlessly fuse elements of horror-film soundtracks, psychedelic doom, and atmospheric noise into something otherworldly.

Insect Ark’s Dana Schechter comments, “”Sea Harps”, a favorite in our live sets, is loosely based on the Greek myth of the Sirens. Broadcasting an ominous and lonely call into the night, the Sirens’ song was irresistible to all who heard it, luring sailors to an untimely and violent death.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
