VR SEX Make Their Return with 2nd Single “Inanimate Love”

About humans who are in love with things that have not yet (by definition) achieved 'sentience'

VR SEX return with their upcoming album’s second single, “Inanimate Love,” alongside a new music video edited and animated by Danny Perez.  VR SEX says it’s “a short-form, contemporary documentary about humans who are in love with things that have not yet (by definition) achieved ‘sentience’.”

Hard Copy, the new album from VR SEX, is 10 new tracks of sneering psychedelic punk streaked with Chrome-damaged freak-outs and snotty power pop harmonies, chronicling sex doll love affairs and glue-sniffing fatales.  The record, out March 22 from Dais Records, revisits the project’s perennial fascinations: twisted lust, cheap thrills, dirty money, doomed delinquents, and ruined romance amid the creeps and cracked dreamers of gritty city voids.

Following 2022’s Rough Dimension LP, Noel Skum– aka Andrew Clinco of Drab Majesty– made the radical leap of expanding his psychedelic post-punk vehicle VR SEX into a fully collaborative five-piece band. 

To christen the new group’s camaraderie of becoming a five-piece band, VR SEX booked a block of studio time in Glassell Park, swapped skeletal iPhone demos, and “did that classic thing of a band making the exact record they want without any interference.” Working 12-hour days, they banged out the basics in a week, then tracked the rest over a month, fine-tuning it with flourishes, FX, and amplifier experiments.

The album title refers to the uncanny valley between “facsimile and the real thing, and the illusion that one is better than the other – when both come with their own menu of delights and demonic pleasures.” Hard Copy embraces extremes and outliers, delusion and perversion, the conflicted dimensional depths lurking in every exploded heart.
