Eye Contact by Gang Gang Dance
Released: May 2011
Label: 4ad
It's not that Eye Contact can't be broken down into its constituent parts. It's just that descriptors like worldbeat, crunk, fusion and dream pop fail to express its collective sound. Gang Gang Dance produce a perceptually challenging racket that's all about sonic reflection, refraction, decay and shadow play. The constants are crystallized synths, chopped grooves and Liz Bougatsos' ethereal chirp, yet they're incessantly dissolving, reforming, then dissolving again. At the midway point, a track emerges from the GGD's private noosphere titled "Mindkilla." That's exactly what Eye Contact is.
