Deepest Pit Official Music video
2023 𒄬 Stitched and bound by Ashly X, this testament to hate channels the atrophy and sacrifice of queerness within a purgatory of barbed wire. Through visceral reflections of faith, flesh fused with machine and subliminal scrawls, tassel encapsulates the essence and spiritual decay of industrial youth.
Fear, resentment, and the search for what is right; these are the elements that formed the early foundations of Tassel. Graced with cutting synths and rich with post-punk and dance rhythms, Tassel fuses industrial, EBM, and punk influences together creating a haunting sound for the new generation.
The inventive sensation of 80’s youth is reincarnated in a project that is both esoteric and experimental, never shying away from unique sounds. Commanded by vocals that oscillate into the stereo void, the terror and glamor of gothic rock is executed, exorcized, and reborn into the twisted sensation that is Tassel. Trey SequeIra is joined by May Winterhalt and Ashly X.
