It's been 7 years since Gang Gang Dance last graced us with their infectious experimental pop music, but today the band announced their sixth full-length album,Kazuahshita on 4AD. You can pre-order the record here. According to Google Translate, which is never wrong and never makes mistakes, Kazuahshita translates to "made a mistake." The record will be released on June 22nd, with the album release show that same day at Brooklyn's Elsewhere.
The band also shared the first single from Kazuahshita, entitled "Lotus."It's a swirling, blissful song full of highs and lows that give us some much-needed respite from the news. Singer Lizzi Bougatsos' alienesque voice floats above Brian DeGraw and Josh Diamond's improvisational, synth-driven pop explorations. If you've never listened to Gang Gang Dance, imagine if Grimes and Blonde Redhead's music collided on a distant planet where musical rules are thrown out the window. You can listen to "Lotus," below.
