With her edgy debut 13-track album ‘Disease of The Mind‘ due for release in Spring this year and slated to broaden our minds, Staytus cuts a massive hole through the fragile walls of her next-door neighbour on ‘Dreams from Hell‘.
25-year-old Scottsdale, Arizona local Sam Grundemann aka Staytus is an alternative industrial goth composer, trans gamer, songwriter, musician, vocalist, writer, audio engineer, and music producer.
”As an Avid Certified Pro Tools Operator of Music and Postproduction with college degrees in art, audio production and sound design, Staytus is a master at crafting soundscapes that are expansive, loud, and modern.” ~ Staytus
Passionately singing about hugely relevant topics such as bitter heartbreak, traumatic despair, lonely resentment, and reality slipping away in this whirlwind world that can suck away all of your goodness in a split second, Staytus unleashes something for the underground to claw into here. Her vocals are hauntingly raw and with meaning, on a self-produced beat that has your bleeding ears shaking in alarm.
‘Dreams from Hell‘ from Scottsdale, Arizona-based industrial goth artist and music producer/audio wizard Staytus, is a statement single from a famished young woman who has decided to be the navigator of her own destiny. Lacerating through all doubts with her determined mindset and a clear talent for the production side, this is a terrorizing track that you will either love or be afraid of. That is just the way that it was intended after all, from an artist who is only just beginning this new journey.
