Emerging doom duo Divide and Dissolve have announced their recent signing to Geoff Barrow's (Portishead, Quakers, Devs, Dark) Invada Records.
To officially christen the announcement, the band has shared a eerily ominous visual for the single, "We Are Really Worried About You."
The track is the first offering from the band's forthcoming LP, Gas Lit, which is set to be released in January of 2021. The album showcases the band's uncompromising brand of drone, latent with social discourse and rooted in resistance. The album will see the tandem working with producer Ruban Neilson of Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
The band has issued the following steadfast statement regarding their most recent musical offering. “‘We Are really Worried About You’ is a call to transformation and freedom. This song and video seek to undermine and destroy the white supremacist colonial framework. We are weaving together our fight for Indigenous Sovereignty, Black and Indigenous Liberation, Water, Earth, and Indigenous land given back. Decolonise now.”
Label founder Geoff Barrow added the following of the recent signing. “I first became aware of Divide & Dissolve through a mutual friend. She then sent me their album and it totally freaked me out with its beauty and extreme heaviness. Takaiya and Sylvie are brilliant people who feel like part of the Invada family already.” Barrow continues, “I’m really looking forward to them releasing their new album with us and we 100% support their fight to abolish white supremacy with their crushing doom.”
