Track: Doomsquad – ‘Let It Go’, plus UK/US tour dates

Toronto’s electro-psych, dance-rock sibling trio DOOMSQUAD have shared entrancing new single ‘Let It Go’, the third track to be shared from their forthcoming LP Let Yourself Be Seen, out May 10th via Bella Union.

“The song is kind of an inner debate between two opposing voices of a conflicted self-conscience over how to cope through these chaotic times. One side balances a process of disengagement, of “letting go” of anger, resentment and fear by detaching oneself from the news cycle, and social media and journeying towards inner peace in a more spiritual way. The other side argues for staying socially and politically engaged, staying tuned in and turned on and leaning into the fiery activist energy and fighting this noble fight. Can both sides co-exist? Can you find a balance? What’s healthier? What’s fair? These are the questions this song tries to grapple with.”

Let Yourself Be Seen is the most assertive, ambitious, groove-sodden declaration of intent yet from Trevor, Jaclyn and Allie Blumas: the sound of dance floor believers and thinkers firing on all personal and political fronts, at a time when we need it most. The trio took a more forthright approach for their third album, aiming to “crystallise what DOOMSQUAD is and what it means to us. What we always knew but put at the forefront of this record is that DOOMSQUAD is a project of protest, catharsis and emotional and spiritual reconnection through music and, especially, through dance-music culture. It’s about activating the body on the most fundamental level, into states of change, release and reunion.”
The band also share exciting news of an extensive North American tour they will embark on supporting Operators (feat. members of Wolf Parade) which kicks off the end of May.
