From Oakland, California, ÖTZI pierces the heart with their dark and passionate style of post-punk. Known for their blistering stage show and intricate songwriting, Ötzi first tore through the punk and post-punk underground with their 2017 debut LP, Ghosts, which Revolver Magazine called “a modernized but timeless take on the genre.”

For their sophomore album, Ötzi joins Artoffact Records to release Storm, a powerful and dynamic work that channels all the emotions of drastic transformation. Immediately apparent on Storm is the interweaving of brooding vocal melodies with inspired chants, and the rich interplay of hypnotic guitar sounds with volcanic bass lines set to a propulsive beat. Singer and bassist Akiko Sampson’s soaring vocal clarity often takes a sharp dive into the gutteral, “as if they’re being piped in straight from the depths of hell,” as previously described by Bandcamp Daily. Singer and drummer Gina Marie responds with calls and chants, commanding the listener to stay focused as her syncopated punk style drives an infectious rhythm. Guitarist K. Dylan Edrich blankets the groundwork set by Akiko and Gina with airy chimes that segue into aggressive riffs. With the addition of the lush synth lines composed by Sampson, bright saxophone by latest member Winter Zora, and violin by Edrich, the album flows from the luxuriant and pensive self-reflection of “Moths” to a celebration of supportive love in “Hold Still”, to the hard-hitting resolve of “Ballad of Oiwa” and “Tunnels,” expressing in each track all of the joys and pains of cathartic self-renewal.

Track Name: Moths
Walking, writhing, reaching forward
Moths dig deep into the ground
And covering all up with dirt
The caterpillars curl
Becoming themselves where they can't be found

Dream of other places
And the lifetimes you could know
While you sink into the shadows
Of the night
Dream of other places
Dusk into the dawn
You’re waiting and waiting and waiting for more

And the moths fly off in a flurry
With their wings spread out into the night
And they can't quite remember what they were before
All they know is that they want for more

Changes deep inside me stirring
Set it off, set it off, set it off, set it off, set it

And the moths travel through moonlight
Oh moon that old celestial friend
Don't be tortured by that flame
That flickering earthly thing
Moths you must go forward towards the sky



Letras de Español:

POLILLAS

Caminando, retorciéndose, adelantándose
Las polillas cavan profundamente en el suelo
Y cubriéndolo todo de mugre
Las orugas se rizan
Llegando a ser ellos mismos donde nadie los puede encontrar

Sueño de otros lugares
Y las vidas que puedas conocer
Mientras te hundes en las sombras
De la noche
Sueño de otros lugares
Atardecer al alba
Estás esperando y esperando y esperando por más

Y las polillas salen disparadas apresuradamente
Con sus alas extendidas en la noche
Y no recuerdan lo que eran antes
Todo lo que saben es que quieren más

Sueño de otros lugares
Y las vidas que puedas conocer
Mientras te hundes en las sombras
De la noche
Sueño de otros lugares
Atardecer al alba
Estás esperando y esperando y esperando por más

Cambios profundamente dentro de mí me emocionan
Haz que estallen, Hazlos estallar, Hazlos estallar, Hazlos estallar, Hazlos estallar

Y las polillas viajan a través de la luz de la luna
Oh luna que viejo amigo celestial
No seas torturado por esa llama
Esa cosa terrenal parpadeante
Polillas tenéis que avanzar hacia el cielo
Track Name: Ballad of Oiwa
I, all my life
Did you know wrong
Sat by your side
By your side

My eye
Bleeds down my face
I curse your name
I seal your fate

I will take my child
Will haunt your night
Lantern in the sky

My eye
Bleeds down my face
I curse your name
I seal your fate

You thought I would be
Expendable
I’m coming for you

From now on call me
Oiwa
You will see me
You’ll beg for mercy
You won’t find any
Your sword is spinning
Turning, twisting
Pulling you
to your grave


Letras de Español:

BALADA DE OIWA

Yo, toda mi vida
No te equivocaste
Sentada a tu lado
A tu lado

Mi ojo
Sangra por mi cara
Maldigo tu nombre
Yo sello tu destino

Me llevaré a mi hijo
Atormentará tu noche
Linterna en el cielo

Mi ojo
Sangra por mi cara
Maldigo tu nombre
Yo sello tu destino

Pensaste que seria
Reemplazable
Voy a por ti
Desde ahora llámame
Oiwa
Me verás
Suplicarás misericordia
No encontrarás ninguna
Tu espada esta girando
Girando, retorciéndose
Acercándote a tu tumba
