as justin majetich tilted his axis away from full band arrangements and more towards a singular production style, a name change for his output also felt natural. shedding the moniker CARE in favor of the slightly altered mononym majetic, the queens-based artist will release his third full-length album, club dread, on november 2nd via winspear.
the album’s lead single, “horseback,” is a jarring, dissonant port of entry into majetic’s after-hours electronic dystopia, the tension palpable in frenetic string arpeggios and haunting vocal samples that precipitate its central melody. equal parts acerbic and austere with an eerie music video in tow, “horseback” is a subversive anthem, suitable for those who have always observed the dance floor from a distance. check it out below.
