Album Title: HARD POWER
The ZGRT single HARD POWER is written by Brooklyn based songwriter/synthesist/producer Zachery Allan Starkey, with production assistance and final mix by DFA’s Gavin Russom (Black Meteoric Star/LCD Soundsystem/DFA Records). Vocals are recorded and engineered by William Andrew Raposo of Midnight Magic. In the Fall of 2014, Russom offered ZGRT the use of his personal recording studio and arsenal of synthesizers for the better part of two months.
Inspired by this opportunity, Starkey got to work on HARD POWER—a bold reflection of America’s role in never ending wars abroad and surveillance state at home. A nine minute long dance odyssey transports the listener into a sensual auditory experience replete with driving arpeggiated synth bass lines, analogue synths and dark danceable beats.Vocals ranging from dreamy and sensual to hard and powerful directly reinforce a political dichotomy between hard and soft power – lulling the listener into auditory, paternalistic comfort before launching solid bass lines and a figurative auditory assault. Maternal and paternal references in the song further invoke a dreamy state of political complacency required to launch an attack and reinforce hard power.
The latter half of the song is a soaring auditory experience transporting a listener through the night sky on a figurative attack mission which doubles as an aural one. In addition to a wonderful dance track, the song is a powerful, participatory reflection on an individuals role in current events.
ZGRT was founded in late 2014 by Starkey, combining electronic synthesis and aspects of techno, house, and post-punk with thought provoking and subversive lyrics, Building upon previous synth and post punk inspired solo albums as an underground NYC solo staple with his project ZAS, Starkey now presents a new project, ZGRT. In addition to Starkey’s songwriting, production, and synth work, HARD POWER also includes additional keyboards from Rob Interface was recruited along with Jo-Anne Hyun, who joins on synthesizers and provides melodic backing vocals. The resulting work nods to influences like New Order, Jamie Principle, LCD Soundsystem, Sisters of Mercy, and Patti Smith—and is a sonic testament to Starkey’s recent participation in a broader world of club music on New York City’s dance floors with colleagues such as DFA.
