A piercing, heartfelt elegy, Lizzi Bougatsos empathetically sings for those lives unjustly lost to police brutality over weighty, tug-o-war synths and destabilising beats.

Founded by Lizzi Bougatsos, Brian DeGraw and Josh Diamond, Gang Gang Dance has consistently blurred the boundaries between the New York art and music scenes for nearly two decades. They are as comfortable performing rare improvisational sets at the Whitney Biennial as they are at Coachella sand count Dash Snow & Dan Colen, Tinchy Stryder and the Boredoms as previous collaborators.

Kazuashita – the band’s first record together since Eye Contact in 2011 – is an intoxicating mix of shoegaze and electronic ambience and was produced by DeGraw after recording sessions across several New York studios and art spaces. The trio were joined by drummer Ryan Sawyer and Jorge Elbrecht. Pre-order Kazuashita here.
