SUM/ONE, the debut solo album from bEEdEEgEE is released today.
The moniker of Brian DeGraw of Gang Gang Dance, the record features tracks with Lovefoxxx, Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip, Douglas Amour, and Lizzi Bougatsos. Written and recorded over the course of a year in his Woodstock studio, the W0RMB1N, SUM/ONE initially began life when Brian left New York City – his home for the past fifteen years – for the clouds of Woodstock. Amidst the peace of this new environment, the audio sketches he worked on gradually evolved into a project that fuses deep synth soundscapes with audacious pop moments.
bEEdEEgEE's SUM/ONE is out now. Full tracklisting can be found here.
The video for 'Flowers' premieres today. You can watch it here or below.
