Eye Contact

9th May 2011

Recorded throughout 2010 with long-term collaborator Chris Coady (producer of Saint Dymphna and Rawwar EP, as well as recent releases by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Zola Jesus, Beach House and TV On The Radio), Eye Contact catches the new line-up subtly building upon the melodic aspects of their last album; the landmark Saint Dymphna.

The album opens with a brief speech, “I can hear everything. It’s everything time,” then segues effortlessly into the audacious eleven-minute slow-burn ‘Glass Jar’. Elsewhere, Eye Contact features a guest appearance from Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip, whose signature vocals take centre stage on the track ‘Romance Layers’.

The album's rich sonic palette reveals the band's fondness for a variety of sounds, from the bass-led frequencies of dancehall and UK dance, to the more outre elements of pop. As such, Eye Contact stands as Gang Gang Dance's definitive statement thus far.
