Marketing Highlights

The Fader Premieres "Black Plate" - "Black Plate" features Kahn's lyrics and vocals, around which Profligate's teetering synths and atonal crackles swirl like snakes on acid. Impose Premiere of "Enlist" - ...different facets of noise and structured arrangements that ebb and flow brilliantly and make for a fresh experience on every listen. Resident Advisor Stream of "Enlist" - You could never quite call Noah Anthony's music hi-def, but this delectable slice of post-punk pop comes close. Warzawa Streams "Enlist" - ...mixes noise, industrial and new wave synth pop. "Enlist" on The Fader's List of Best New Songs - ...a tense industrial track with tearing and bubbling sounds that, in context, are actually kind of soothing.

About Somewhere Else Noah Anthony and Elaine Kahn walk the line between dark pop and noise on the new Profligate LP, Somewhere Else. In doing so they weave minimal beats, synthesizer, electric bass, hushed vocals and sheets of droning noise into something larger than the sum of its parts. First single “Enlist” acts as the album’s centrifuge – a flashing synth and electric bass drive the track directly into a thrilling accelerando where the instruments swirl madly. This track is the peak of the albums fevered middle third which pushes the more meditative songs to Somewhere Else’s bookends which are more languid. The glacial title track achieves grandness by pairing hyper-detailed and minimal instrumentation and gorgeous vocals by Anthony and Kahn framed with an arrangement that allows a spacious build. “Black Plate” is the dark pop moment here featuring airy lead vocals from Kahn above a stately beat all leading toward the refrain, “Touch what’s sweet like / There is no one home.” Anthony’s live bass is in full force on this track with jazzy figures that respond to Kahn’s careful phrasing – if you’ve seen Profligate in the last year you know the bass is the secret weapon. These are just three tracks on this diverse collection that nonetheless feels like a cohesive song cycle.

Something Else deftly balances seeming opposites – chaos and composition, melody and noise, programmed and live instrumentation, all with a distinctly human touch. Mastered by Carl Saff. About Profligate
