DOOMSQUAD release a new video for “Ovoo” and the digital single “Ovoo / The Cools”
via Hand Drawn Dracula (CAN/US/World) and No Pain In Pop (EU/UK). The trio begin their mini tour of EU/UK with No Joy, Jessy Lanza, and Dead Gaze this week. The video was directed by Chris Boni and the single features art by Randy Grskovic.
DOOMSQUAD release a hypnotic new video for “Eternal Return” from their Artificial EP and their upcoming HDD full-length debut. Director Steve Reaume created the video “using his own algorithm that visually interprets the song mathematically. This results in a unique formation of blurred, grainy lines, slowly moving in kaleidoscope vision, triggering swift, paralyzing light as they begin to form more detailed objects ~ find yourself lost between
their spiritual forces and a wicked video that matches the vibe perfectly.” (via Portals)
Doomsquad will be touring Eastern Canada with HSY this September/October,
followed by a tour of the UK/EU in November.
The UK has a touch of jet-lag on being up-to-date with Canadian trip-merchants DoomSquad, having to scrabble around for an import copy (or digital download) of the imminent release of ‘DoomSquad EP’ on Hand Drawn Dracula Records (with the DoomSquad LP releasing in September in the UK, through No Pain in Pop). Featuring swirling tribal beats, echo-laden guitars, ghostly vocals, and the deepest reworking of The Doors’ classic ‘Riders on The Storm’ you’ll ever hear (think The XX and Mezzanine-era Massive Attack forming a supergroup), it’s worth checking out. We caught up with the sister-brother-sister trio in Toronto recently to chat about how it all came together. ~ READ THE FULL INTERVIEW AT SPINDLE MAGAZINE
“the mysterious Toronto/Montreal-based sibling trio, have been crafting eerie electronica for several years, and recently signed to Hand Drawn Dracula / Artificial in order to spread their tunes to parts unknown.
To celebrate their new signing, we met with them in their basement, which conveniently doubles as a studio, for a performance of “Oovo,” off their as-yet-unannounced debut LP, tentatively titled Kalaboogie. The haunting track features chilling harmonies, a pulsing electronic beat, and a recorder solo.” ~ Exclaim
