Gang Gang Dance - Glass Jar

Most eleven minute songs result in the listener slipping into some kind of daydreaming coma, but the new Gang Gang Dance embraces this out-of-body quality and still calls for total attention; a delicately pieced collection of sounds that build towards dizzying heights with Lizzi Bougatsos' defined vocals cutting through the delirium. The spoken introduction of "I can hear everything. It's everything time" is the initial instruction, encouraging unhindered free form whilst encompassing intricate layering to ensure the resonating fragments all work in sync. A beautiful piece of work that hints at the great things to follow on their new release, Eye Contact (out May 9th on 4AD).
