Track Of The Day: White Ring – ‘Nothing’

Warped, watery vocals and thumping percussion combine in densely hypnotic style on WHITE RING‘s latest single, ‘Nothing’. Taken from their recent album Gate Of Grief, the track is accompanied by a video which shows the pair immersed in their own sound.

Despite being their debut album, Gate of Grief (released via Rocket Girl Records) arrived eight years after WHITE RING’s benchmark EP, Black Earth That Made Me, which earned them a cult underground following. With an opening drum beat reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails’ infamous single ‘Closer’, ‘Nothing’ is a dark gem set to please fans of “gothic beats and sinister synth bass-lines” as well as loyal followers of the “witch house” movement .

The single is the first collaboration with newcomer Adina Viarengo, who added her vocals in 2016 to the existing instrumental track that Bryan Kurkimilis created for the first set of WHITE RING demos in 2009. The band was originally formed by Bryan and Kendra Malia after meeting on Myspace in 2006, with Bryan and Adina currently touring as a duo.
