Black Doldrums Tour and Single – ‘Those With A Rope Around Their Neck (Don't Always Hang)’
Black Doldrums, the London-based duo comprising singer-guitarist Kevin Gibbard and raven-haired drummer Sophia Lacroix, have unveiled their new single, ‘Those With a Rope Around Their Neck (Don't Always Hang)’, to coincide with a jam-packed 17-date tour of the UK and Ireland.
Since forming in 2014, Black Doldrums have taken the scene by storm like a relentless juggernaut, delivering transient and euphoric dark-psych, shoegaze. Their unique sound combines multiple layers of echo-soaked guitar with heavy, pounding drums, creating a sonorous array of gothic-psych textures.
The new single, released via Adjust Records, is taken from Black Doldrums’ highly-anticipate debut album and has been made available on 7" and digital download. Searing lyrics amalgamate exquisitely with ominous, thunderous drumming and savage riffs, creating a perfect match.
The upcoming album was produced and engineered by James Aparicio (Spiritualized, Nick Cave, Depeche Mode). The single includes a version of the track ‘Exit City Lights’ from last year’s self- released EP, People’s Temple, on the B-side and will also be available to buy at Black Doldrum’s shows for the duration of their tour.
