Biography

Doldrums, the Montreal producer renowned for his unique approach to genre-blending on his "Egypt" 12" and brilliant debut EP, Empire Sound, has announced a limited edition forthcoming 7" single, "She Is The Wave," out November 6th on Arbutus Records (North America), and Dine Alone Records (Australia).

The new track, which can be heard on Pitchfork, provides a look into the intense, chaotic and otherworldly realm of Airick Woodhead, one that constantly seems on the verge of both becoming an entirely new entity and dissolving into disorientation with its hyperactive blending of samples and beats. The 7" comes backed with another new track, "Dysphonia," and is set for release on November 5th on Souterrain Transmission in Europe and November 6th on Arbutus Records in North America, and Dine Alone Records in Australia.

“I got the beat for this song from my friend, Guy Dallas, a fellow Toronto based noise musician-turned-hi fi house producer,” Woodhead explains. “As soon as I heard his track, the melody and everything just came instantly. Even though we both listen to a lot of European electronic music, I feel like our take on it is unavoidably American. Like, no matter how much you dress up before you go out, you still got that deep stink. The lyrics are about my friend who is a force of nature.”

In addition to releasing the 7" and working on new material for a full-length album, Doldrums will set out on a month-long European tour with Purity Ring this November and play some of the most sought-after showcases at CMJ, all dates are below. Having already toured this year with Grimes, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Austra, Doldrums has streamlined his adrenaline-fueled, captivating live show as a three-piece band on stage.

Deemed "super-impressive, not least because he was using a proper old-fashioned band to reproduce his highly intricate, chaotic collage pop" in The Guardian's Band of the Day, you can also get a glimpse inside the complicated world of Doldrums in a recent video interview with NBC Nonstop Sound.
