Listen to the Esoteric Old School Goth of Von Schmaltzy’s “Intuition”

Oh, These vague little Intuitions of mine;
Manifests and grows like a vine up my spine

Straight from the catacombs of a grungy basement in Columbus, Ohio lurks Von Schmaltzy, the solo project of one Celtic Schmaltz.

With the new single release, “Intuition”, Von Schmaltzy throws the following into a cauldron: one part essence of gothic rock, one part Dave Vanian-style crooning…and the secret ingredient: eau de psychedelia. The resulting sonic potion sounds akin to The Psychedelic Furs, The Cure, The Chameleons, and Yves Tumor. The hypnotic, repetitive track examines the left-hand path of following your instincts, lulling the listener nearly into an altered theta state.

“Intuition is a track you could bust a broken move to (if you wanted),” says Schmaltz. “The song focuses on the sixth sense; on pure instinct. Being that I do everything on my own; it’s kind of a blind art. Relying on my own intuition becomes a sixth sense. I feel with the current polarizing climate; it’s a somewhat relatable song for many people. It’s hard to know what the hell to believe anymore.”

This song will be one of nine in the forthcoming LP, Snake In The Garden. It’s hard to fathom the album is a DIY project, given the poetic, sinister richness to the overall sound.

“I try to take a different approach with each song. This one is a lot more whimsical. However, it is the most lighthearted in nature compared to the rest to come without a doubt. The singles that follow will see much more of a robust Goth flavor and take listeners into a much darker and grim world.”
