Last year was a big year for Trent Reznor with the final tour of Nine Inch Nails and his marriage to former West Indian Girl frontwoman Mariqueen Maandig. It seems like Reznor and Maandig have decided to take their relationship to the next level and step out with a collaborative project titled ‘How to Destroy Angels’. No better way to test a new marriage I suppose than to involve yourself creatively with the ego of another frontperson who also has to listen to you complain about the minutia of life every night before bed. Aside from the possible marriage counseling that may be needed as a result of the project their sound can best be described as brooding and dark with tinges of industrial and trip hop. A self titled EP is expected to be released this summer but you can listen to the first track ‘A Drowning’ below and below that is the newly released video for their second track ‘The Space Between’ which is suitably bloody and morbid.
