“i’m trying to figure out what it feels like to cry underwater”
The debut album from black tar heroin (Jake Bellissimo and Jack Barham) does not hide anything, turning tremor into tremolo and melodrama into melody.
“this record is dedicated to the gay porn star arpad miklos, who tragically took his own life on february 3rd, 2013. it’s only fitting to wish him a merry christmas because he definitely deserves a silent night, whatever that means. i’ve heard he was just one of the nicest people.
neither of us are religious, but i (jake) was raised catholic and jack was raised jewish. whatever you believe in, i hope you keep on caring about it.”
