London, UK black metal act CALLIGRAM have today shared a new single, "Ostranenie", from their upcoming album, Position | Momentum. "Ostranenie" is the third track to be taken their sophomore full-length, which is due out via Prosthetic Records on July 14. On "Ostranenie", CALLIGRAM expand ever further on Position | Momentum's celebration of chaos. Alongside the new single, CALLIGRAM have also recently announced UK tour dates in July - with further details below.
Speaking on "Ostranenie", CALLIGRAM comments: "'Ostranenie' is a word that Russian formalists used for Defamiliarization. This is what life is all about: fighting habits, seeking desire undiluted by habits. Habits ruin everything, they make everything flat and plain. Defamiliarization is the impossible aim to experience everything like it was the first time and it's the central concepts of art, poetry and of course music.
"The purpose of art and music is to impart the sensation of things as they are perceived and not as they are known. The technique of art is to make objects 'unfamiliar', to make forms difficult. The function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. Position | Momentum and its celebration of chaos shakes up the "familiar scene" giving a new meaning to it."
