GANG GANG DANCE - KAZUASHITA VINYL (LTD. ED. RED)
LIMITED EDITION RED VINYL
Release Date: 22nd June 2018
The experimental art-pop electronica collective from New York bring us their first album in seven years, during which time the landscape in which they had previously made their music has shifted ever more. Kazuashita is the meeting point between Eastern and Western sounds, between art and music, pop and avant-garde, electronic and acoustic; and it proves just how vital this band still are. Lizzi Bougatsos's ethereal, angelic vocals off-set by the shimmering and continuously changing mood of the record which uses voice clips and spoken word to convey their political undertones. Give the Gang Gang a Dance, or at least a chance!

"Gang Gang Dance – one of the most enduring and creatively vibrant musical acts of 21st Century New York – return with brand new album, Kazuashita. Formed initially as an improvisational outfit in the early 2000s, Gang Gang Dance are Lizzi Bougatsos, Brian DeGraw and Josh Diamond. All independently operating artists in their own rights, they consistently blur the boundaries between music and art; as comfortable today performing at the Whitney Biennial as they are at Coachella, and count Dash Snow and Nate Lowman, Tinchy Stryder and the Boredoms as previous collaborators. Held together by Lizzi Bougatsos and her otherworldly vocal, Kazuashita is an intoxicating mix of ethereal shoegaze and electronic ambience, self-produced by Brian DeGraw."
