Gang Gang Dance 4AD sessions

   
Gang Gang Dance played an amazing gig at HAU last week.  This video is by 4AD. Here is their text about the video: To mark the release of fourth album Eye Contact, Brooklyn's Gang Gang Dance is the latest act to record a 4AD Session. Filmed in early April at Angelic Studios in the heart of rural England, the band convened in a purposefully built 20ft square mirrored room, encased by endless reflections of themselves.
Inspired by the so-called 'infinity rooms' of the seminal Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, the construction of the space comprised most of the time allotted to recording. Consequently, the session didn't begin until midnight, and continued through until sunrise the next day. Inevitability, the twilight hours suffused the performance with a subtle euphoria, which allayed with the warped environment crated by the mirrors, touched the renditions of 'Glass Jar' and 'Adult Goth' with an otherworldly quality.
