New Music: How to Destroy Angels – “A Drowning”

A little bit behind on this, but I wanted to share the new How to Destroy Angels single – “A Drowning” – with you.  How to Destroy Angels is the new project from Trent Reznor, in collaboration with his wife, Mariqueen Maandig, and represents the first post-NIN music he has produced.  In fact, the duo have produced an eponymous EP that will be out this Summer.  As for “A Drowning,” the Alan Moulder-produced track reminds me of the best moments of The Downward Spiral (mixed, in fact, by Moulder), or earlier NIN work, in that it has a tightness of focus and composition that seems to reflect a genuine, hungering sense of purpose.  Personally, I’m very excited for the EP, as I can feel that this track is just a ripple of thunder before the real storm begins…

Also, courtesy of TwentyFourBit, here’s a possible track listing:

01  The Space In Between (3:34)
02  Parasite (5:04)
03  Fur-Lined (4:00)
04  BBB (3:31)
05  The Believers (5:35)
06  A Drowning (7:13)
