Worship - The Stare [Self release - 2022]

The Stare is a recent two-track from Worship- a decidedly secretive wall-noise project, who themes all of its release around nude/semi-glad females and makes entrancing at times fairly creative examples of the genre.
 

As with much of this project output- this is a self-released digital affair. It features on its front cover a toned and smaller-breasted woman staring out at you in a changeling, slightly quizzical manner with a backdrop of shadowy and cluttered shelves behind her. The release can be downloaded directly from https://worshiphnw.bandcamp.com/album/the-stare
 
The first track here is “Don’t Look Away” which slides in at the 26.26 mark. The ‘wall’s open with just a slightly erratically buffeting ‘n’ baying rumble- this soon surrounded by a growing selection of rattling ‘n’ shaking sub-tones, with the thickness of the whole thing growing fast. To begin with, it feels like it may suddenly slow and grind itself to a halt, yet it never does. Throughout the ‘wall’ retains an uncertain feeling, which I guess nicely works with the theme of being in the company of someone unpredictable, possible unbalanced who is just staring at you.
 
Next and lastly we have the track “Deadly”- this comes in at the 22.24 mark. It begins with another erratic tone- this time it’s a more rapid sort of drumming on wood type tone- around this we find a slowly glowing web of sub-tones, which take in purred rattles, constantly rolling spins, and focused shaking. Unlike the first track, the focus does seem to thicken/ grow instead, it carries on with this narrow sort of battering intensity.
 
Once again, The Stare finds Worship trying to do something a little different, and interestingly themed within the ‘wall-noise’, without stepping too far out of the restraints of the genre- which is a difficult thing to do. This is certainly a project to keep an eye on!
