Helen Money has released the beautiful title track from her upcoming album Become Zero. The title of the album and the track refers to the aftermath of death — what happens when we die? Do we disappear completely and become nothing, zero? Or does something more take place? Through her music, Chesley takes us on a journey as she grapples with the concepts and the emotions of life’s end: loss, isolation, sorrow, peace and resolution.
LISTEN: Helen Money, "Become Zero":
Become Zero continues Chesley’s exploration of truly emotive and intense music. Written after the death of both of her parents, Become Zero amplifies Chesley’s musical ferocity with palpable sadness and striking beauty. Using her extensively manipulated cello, Chesley joins forces once more with drummer Jason Roeder (Sleep, Neurosis), Rachel Grimes (Rachel’s) and collaborator and co-producer Will Thomas (who provides sound effects and samples) on an album that is incredibly personal and visceral.
Helen Money is going on tour with Russian Circles this fall, following a monthlong residency at the Complex in LA and shows with Shellac and Sleep in the US! Tour dates here: www.thrilljockey.com/tours
