Collide

Collide is an electrogoth/industrial rock band founded in the early nineties, in Los Angeles. The name comes from the collision of musical styles – ethereal vocals provided by kaRIN, industrial music provided by Statik.

Collide is an electrogoth/industrial rock band founded in the early nineties, in Los Angeles. The name comes from the collision of musical styles – ethereal vocals provided by kaRIN, industrial music provided by Statik.

"We just wanted to make the kind of music that we wanted to hear".

Once upon a time, somewhere around 1992, two people met at an industrial dance club. One was very thirsty, so they asked the other to get them some water. After the liquid reached the glass, the two began a conversation, which became a friendship, and then formed a creative union.

The creative union became what is known as Collide. The primary core of the Los Angeles based duo is Statik and kaRIN. Statik is responsible for the sound orchestrations and overall production. kaRIN takes care of the vocals and lyrics.

"We never thought of starting a band, we just wanted to make the kind of music we wanted to hear. After the first few songs were finished, we thought the collaboration sounded like something special. A few songs later, we realized that the music we were making was really important to us. It would need a name. We thought long and hard and then COLLIDE came to us. We knew it was right, as it described what we were doing and the feeling of the music perfectly".

The essence of Collide is the coming together of two opposing entities to form a symbiotic whole… combining the female and masculine energies, the cognitive and the subliminal, the strength and the mystery.

Meaningful lyrics and alluring hypnotic vocals combine with an aural sculpture, to form an experience in listening that manages to defy categorization. "I think the reason why our sound is different is because we do not approach music in a traditional way. We don’t play music, we try to create soundscapes—layers of depth and sound". « hide
