Detroit Dark-Pop and Grunge-influenced singer/songwriter Zilched (aka Chloe Drallos) has announced her new sophomore album Earthly Delights. Set for release on August 11, 2023 via Young Heavy Souls, the project is “a love letter to life and its innermost complexities,” and explores “the constant significance of love in all its forms.”
Alongside the announcement, Zilched has also shared the first look into the album with the single + video, “The Flood.” Inspired by the gothic poetry of Edgar Allan Poe and the surrealism of Arthur Rimbaud, the track is a “lyrical reflection on self-haunting and misplaced blame.” The track is accompanied by a video directed by New York-based filmmaker Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell, Pavement: “Harness Your Hopes”).
I wrote most of the song at Elmwood Cemetery in Detroit around the time it had been flooding in the city. Everything felt biblical and significant during that time, which informed the tone of nearly every song on the record.
Chloe Drallos has been making music as Zilched since the summer of 2017. In 2020, she released her debut album DOOMPOP.
Zilched is also currently playing a handful of shows in the Midwest this month, with dates and tickets available here.
