In much of the world, it is winter. Endless, bone-chilling, frost-covered, intensely isolating winter. All vibrant outdoor life is dead, entombed in ice. Yet humankind struggles on, yearning for mulled wine and warm soup and crackling fires. But Dalhous ain’t gonna give you that shit, humankind. Dalhous are gonna give you MORE WINTER. Hyperwinter. All up in your ears.
And naturally, Blackest Ever Black is gonna bring it to you, on Dalhous’ forthcoming EP, Visibility Is a Trap, due April 7. The Edinburgh duo’s EP contains four original tracks, plus a Regis remix of Dalhous’ “He Was Human and Belonged with Humans.” The EP serves as a glimpse into the future release of the band’s summer release, Will to Be Well; both releases showcase writer/producer Marc Dall’s fascination with Scottish psychiatrist R.D. Laig, self-help, and the anti-psychiatry movement. Fun stuff!
Visibility Is a Trap will be available as a 12-inch and digital download, with pre-orders available here and an audio preview below. The duo will perform at the LAPSUS festival in Barcelona in April, and at a church in London on May 22.
