about

“At its core, Deer Pink sounds like Loren Connors playing his signature style of bluesy, free improv guitar in a post-apocalypse world soundtracked by Trent Reznor‘s more atmospheric work. The dynamic, expansive palette this implies should be unsurprising, given Ron Varod’s work with Kayo Dot and Psalm Zero outside his output under the ZVI banner. The collection of tracks on Deer Pink are exceptionally composed and fine tuned down to every last detail, leading to vast atmospheres that still feel meticulously crafted. […] Deer Pink allows listeners to traverse a rich web of textured soundscapes replete with bold, exceptional ideas. Fans of the broader web of Kayo Dot alumni will undoubtedly enjoy the trip.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy

“Ron Varod (Kayo Dot, Psalm Zero, Sabbath Assembly, etc) has created one of the most moving records of 2019, which is why we feel so honored to be sharing with you this amazing video… This record is sonic proof that music has the power to build and destroy. ZVI’s music is making me feel human again!” – CVLT Nation

“Anna Calvi meets Peter Gabriel meets Glassjaw? That’s a pretty apt description for this mind-bending, slow-burning song. It starts out with just some psychedelic electric guitar, but it turns into something much grander.” – BrooklynVegan

“‘Dear Pink’ builds slowly, moving us from passages that threaten to fade into silence to others that are deeply emotional, cathartic. Guitars buzz and chime, electronic glitches flicker throughout and the percussion provides the faintest heartbeat against an enigmatic vocal line slow to reveal its secrets. ZVI offers up an intriguing and appropriately dark ‘Undenied’ that’s one part darkened prayer, one part invocation of the muse.” – PopMatters
