Des Ark is the name of Aimée Argote’s long-running musical project. Based in North Carolina, the band has taken many forms, but has always been guided by the focused and hauntingly beautiful words and music of Argote, from hushed tones to roaring rockers. Des Ark stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to play some of their latest songs — which happened to have some of the most colorful titles we’ve seen in a while — and to chat with Maia about where the music comes from and how it’s heard.
Featured song: “Snake Stuff” // Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Everything Dies by Des Ark is available now.
