Tokyo-based electro pop producer duo ANIMAL HACK and up and coming indie band EASTOKLAB (of UK PROJECT.) will release 'ICE RED' on Nov. 11. Heavy, throbbing and shimmering digital future bass beats meet and blend with delicate analog band sounds and unique, alt-rock vocals to create an innovative dance track that bridges indie rock with future bass. The two groups share a common background in alternative rock, bringing together their strengths in indie pop rock and electro hyperpop.

EASTOKLAB incorporates their signature band sound free of any synchronized equipment or loop systems, featuring hard synths and dramatic, fluctuating guitars. Weaved within that is ANIMAL HACK's trademark massive sound, utilizing a wide range of sound effects and emotionally satisfying digital precision. The sonic collaboration of a classic rock sound and an electro drop creates a unique and original track.

The title "ICE RED" is a phrase coined by EASTOKLAB, referring to "a flaming red that feels cold to the touch, a fire that once burned so strongly but now is flickering away". The lyrics and emotional vocals depicts the pain in fleeting relationships on the verge of disappearing, a longing tinged with regret that speaks to the listener's soul.
