Song of the Day: “Asphyxiate”
The duo of Lizzie Karr and Ben Wiley are one of the more compelling electronic music groups to come out of the Bay Area since Bassnectar. Though their previous single, “Colours,” was like a prism of anthemic pop, their newest track is darker and more introspective. And the beautiful and haunting music video for “Asphyxiate” alludes to the complicated power dynamics of sex and relationships. “I can’t put up the will to put up a fight,” Karr sings in this skillfully-produced addition to the Colour Theory catalogue.
