@ Announce New New EP, Share Video for New Single ‘Soul Hole’

    @, the duo of guitarist Victoria Rose and Baltimore multi-instrumentalist Stone Filipczak, have announced a new EP. It’s titled Are You There, God? It’s Me, @, and it’s out January 12 via Carpark. Its lead single, ‘Soul Hole’, arrives with a video directed by Devon Voelkel. Check it out below.

    “The vocal loop of this song was found as a recording which I have no recollection of making,” the band’s Victoria Rose explained in a statement. “It was quantized and developed into a track about going to the ‘Soul Hole,’ a place where worldly desires and materiality do not exist.”

    Voelkel added:

    The music video for “Soul Hole” tries to answer the simple question: “What is Car World?”

    Car World is a community-led organization for the greater good, on a mission to rescue the Attendants — an alien species in an alternate universe. This mission is headed by William Banks, a Brooklyn comedian and the to-be savior of Car World (which is Earth World in Arm Universe). Most further questions can be answered in video, which does its best to cover the broad strokes of Car World, its mission, and its origin.

    We were also lucky enough to use the power of computer graphics to create the most realistic depiction to date of William’s journey to Car World, and what it might have been like to be there.

    As the Leader of Car World Philadelphia, it has been an honor.

    @’s debut album, Mind Palace Music, was originally released in 2021 and reissued by Carpark earlier this year. Check our Artist Spotlight interview with @.
