Zvi is the pseudonym under which guitarist Ron Varod crafts his aching, abysmal dirges. Varod has been linked to his work as the guitarist and vocalist of So is the Tongue and currently swings his axe with the avant-garde heavyweights Kayo Dot. One could attribute the sound of Zvi to the time Varod spent in both of the aforementioned bands. But the overall product is much darker and sinister than a lot of the music put out by both musical outfits, if you can believe that.
I’ve been giving So is the Tongue a lot of praise lately and for good reason. If you want to know why, you’re in luck. You can know stream the band’s upcoming full length, A Child of Divorce (out the 17th) below! Check it out now! You won’t be disappointed, I promise.

Check out my interview with front man Ron Varod here.
Their upcoming LP, A Child of Divorce (out January 17th) really blew me away. So is the Tongues unique musical formula provides for an equally unique listening experience. I recently caught up with vocalist and guitarist, Ron Varod, to ask him a few questions regarding the new album, his involvement in Kayo Dot, and weird haircuts.
