Mixed by Kevin McMahon (Swans, Titus Andronicus), “I Taste Blood” has a dark and punchy treatment, capturing the raw and ferocious energy that Ace Of Wands can achieve in their live performance. Exploring the genre of Dream Rock through immersive / intricate soundscapes, and captivating live performances – the band compels audiences to listen with attention and not shy away from the dreams that may reveal hidden parts of themselves.
At the core of the band, multi-instrumentalist Lee Rose sings, plays violin/guitar and synth-bass foot pedals simultaneously while Anna Mernieks and Jody Brumell accompany her on swirling guitar and thunderous drums. Their instrumentation, soaring vocals, and commitment to artistically-driven visual elements explore the depths of overwhelming emotion and transcend typical pop and rock forms. “I Taste Blood” was inspired by the magnetic, electrical energy of being in the presence of someone that you desire, especially when you realize that the feeling is mutual. Exploring a gritty and sensual sound, this is the first song written for the band by guitarist Mernieks.
On January 20th Toronto’s Ace Of Wands will release their new single “I Taste Blood” from their upcoming album “Desiring” (set for release on March 31, via Fortune Stellar Records).
