In case you forgot, Julian Casablancas is in another band called The Voidz and they’re ridiculously good. Today, they dropped a new single called “The Eternal Tao” that is produced by Mac DeMarco. There’s no confirmation about whether or not this track signals that a new album is on the way, but bassist Jacob “Jake” Bercovici offered this statement:
“One weekend in April we somehow ended up Mac’s house in Silver Lake, and he and Kirin recorded two songs we’d been working on. Mac has really dialed his rig and his signal chain is incredibly tasteful. It was interesting to hear ourselves in a foreign sonic atmosphere, because we didn’t bring any of our own gear. Also the songs weren’t really fleshed out at all, and it was great to have their insights and energy injected into the process of finishing them. They’re a dream team to be the studio with. Basically a lot of time fucking around, hunting for tones and vibes that felt cool, sanding down the stones into something more well kempt. We wound up doing a few takes of each song, and then everyone had to leave town the next day. Then we sent it off to the great Ben Baptie to mix and master. Initially, “The Eternal Tao” was born out of some chord and melody ideas Julian brought to the band a few months ago, and everyone put their own input and flavor spins on it and it became its own twisted LSD tinged Nigerian Disneyland of sorts.”
