Fans who keep their ear to the underground have seen Try and Imagine's songs popping up here and there. Zak Holzapfel found his Monty Python-inspired collab with Slawth featured as the 100th Wormfile by our friends at Wormhole Music Group. He also found his way onto fellow curators of The Untz Festival, The Gradient Perspective, as well as Aspire Higher, SurRealist Records, and a bunch more.
Bottom line is: this kid is busy. Holzapfel has a new EP dropping this Friday on east coast bass label Ebisu Sound, and we've got the title track for you today. “Pupa” contains that snarling bass synth that's become a signature of the DMV-based collective, but there are a ton of irreverent and totally surprising moves that make this track stand out.
Try and Imagine has an extraordinarily inventive sound, and doesn't seem to be holding fast to any rules or regulations. Seems to be that whatever Holzapfel wants to tackle, he just goes for it.
Pupa is out August 2 on Ebisu Sound (with brilliant artwork from fellow collective member Frush).
