Insect Ark, the duo featuring Dana Schechter (Swans) and Andy Patterson (SubRosa), will release their new album The Vanishing on February 28. The duo is streaming their new song "Philae," which Schechter tells Revolver is about physical space.
"When I wrote 'Philae,' it was all about space. Not outer space, but physical space — or more specifically, negative space. I wanted the song to feel unmoored, as if it existed in place utterly empty and airless, collapsing, with the dual senses of sinking and floating. I heard about the (true) story of Philae after I'd finished writing the song, and it just felt like the music and the story coexisted perfectly."
