It’s hard to imagine a band like HEALTH being able to progress in any shape or form. After all, their self-titled debut was without a doubt on the cutting edge of avant garde noise. But listening to “We Are Water”, one gets the distinct impression the band has evolved. Their noise is more refined, channeled more precisely. With it, HEALTH has become borderline accessible to a wider audience; and that’s a good thing.
Get Color comes out this fall and is available for preorder now on Lovepump United. Below you’ll find “We Are Water” but do head over and check out HEALTH’s Daytrotter Session, which also includes the track “Death +” off Get Color and “Perfect Skin” from their debut.
