Creating a personal soundtrack to the human psyche’s underbelly, Insect Ark’s psychedelic doom weaves a brooding, textural landscape, a starless night spiked with light and flash. The music braids together delay-drenched lap steel guitar, acoustic and electronic drums, distorted bass & synths to create a sonic mural both uncomfortably intimate and icy cold. Started in late 2011 as a the one-woman solo project of bassist/multi-instrumentalist Dana Schechter, the band became a duo in Jan 2015 with the addition of Portland-based drummer Ashley Spungin. Both women perform solo when apart (Schechter under the Insect Ark moniker, Spungin as Ormus). Insect Ark’s newest album Marrow Hymns will be released Feb 23, 2018 on Profound Lore Records.
