Weyrd Son Records: Pure Ground – The Arsonist / And So Remain 7″

Pure Ground - The Arsonist- And So Remain

Pure Ground is a minimal industrial/wave duo formed in Los Angeles in the Spring of 2012. Members G. Holger and J. Short have over a decade of experience in both pop and experimental traditions. Making use exclusively of classic analog equipment, Pure Ground build a sonic template incorporating equal share of harmonious and discordant elements to drive their strain of rhythmic electronics. Present day dystopian realities and contemporary warfare influence the bands lyrical themes, with reference to 20th century science fiction and horror.

Not limited to music composition, the band also makes forays into analog video work, much of which can be seen projected behind them at performances and in album art. The band became a presence in Los Angeles playing shows with bands such as Martial Canterel, High-Functioning Flesh, Lust for Youth and Pharmakon.
