Both Metavari and MAVS worked together to try to create a cohesive statement within their respective halves of this release. They aimed to include a bit more of a industrial sound to their typical fare of new-wavy, synth-heavy electronica and the aural results are outstanding!
Both artists worked together during the writing and recording process to try to align this release thematically and sonically - bringing in a strong industrial influence alongside their modern synth and retro-electronic sound. Both of these tracks are also congruent in their stances on the current political climate of our country. While the Metavari half uses gorgeous, haunting vocals in a metaphor about injustice, Makeup And Vanity Set takes a sharp stance on gun control through a poignant sound bite placed perfectly in the midst of the KMFDM-like sonic pummeling.
