Dazy – the project of James Goodson – and Militarie Gun – the Los Angeles-based hardcore band led by Ian Shelton – have shared a new collaborative single. ‘Pressure Cooker’ comes with a video directed by Audri Kenley, and you can check it out below.
“Ever since I met Ian, we’ve had a tendency to veer off into long conversations about songwriting, but when he suggested we should try to do something together I thought he was just being friendly,” Goodson said in a press release. “He kept bringing it up so finally I showed him a song I’d been working on, and in no time at all he was sending back vocals and new ideas. I’m always blown away by the amount of energy and personality that Militarie Gun can pack into a song, and it was really cool to work together and see that happening in real time.”
“I think a lot of times rock musicians seem to only create within their own band bubble and I wanted to try to step out of the way we’re used to creating songs,” Shelton explained. “I’d become a huge fan of Dazy and had been bugging James about doing a song together. I don’t think he took me seriously at first, but eventually he sent me ‘Pressure Cooker’ and within a couple hours I’d sent it back with my vocals, and the song was almost done.”
Last year, Militarie Gun released two EPs, All Roads Lead To The Gun and All Roads Lead To The Gun II. Dazy’s latest project, MAXIMUMBLASTSUPERLOUD: The First 24 Songs, also came out in 2021.
