s the frontman and sole songwriter of The Strokes, Julian Casablancas helped ignite a depth charge that helped reinvigorate modern music. In 2013, Casablancas morphed into the next stage in his artistic development: The Voidz.
Over the course of two albums—the daring 2014 debut Tyranny and its 2018 follow-up Virtue — the Voidz’ wild genre-splicing were embraced by fans of all genres and critics alike, developing an underground cult following. In addition to Casablancas, the Voidz are bolstered by the remarkable talents of outsized personalities of the visionistic guitarist Beardo, virtuosic guitarist Amir Yaghami, greatest drummer you never heard of - Alex Carapetis, composer Jeff Kite on synths & spiritual anchor/man behind the wordz bassist/keyboardist Jake Bercovici.
From experimental and heavy metal, to new wave and underground world music, all the way to old school hip-hop beats, indie rock, secret jazz, and classical leanings, the Voidz simply refer to their style (semi-jokingly) as "prison jazz."
In 2023, the Voidz’ forward-in-all-directions mindset continues to run rich. Their two singles, “Prophecy Of The Dragon,” and "Flexorcist" (along with the accompanying double-header music video) felt like characters from various timelines of different musical multi-verses.
Today they offer the new single “All The Same”, which as always the case with the Voidz, is not the same at all.
These are not all of artist's releases, just the ones we have had a look at
