Portugal's Dreamweapon take us on a mind-bending jaunt through space on their video for 'Monte da Virgem', which they've shared ahead of the release 'SOL', their forthcoming sophomore LP to be released February 16th.
|Made up of 10,000 Russos bassist Andre Couto,Â JoÃ£o Campos CostaÂ andÂ Edgar Moreira, DreamweaponÂ emerged in 2009Â and have since gone on to release one EP, their debut S/T album and a handful of singles, whilst taking their immersive and unremitting live show around Europe.Â 'SOL' is their next endeavor and is made up of four improvised compositions recorded in one take at their Porto practice space.Â Talking of the creative approach behind â€˜SOLâ€™, Andre explains:Â â€œWe approached this album in a completely different way to our previous material. Firstly, we decided to record it ourselves which weâ€™ve never done before and this opened up a lot more freedom to experiment and secondly, itâ€™s our most truly-spontaneous record yet. We recorded the tracks live in one take as we all improvised over minimalistic drum-machine loops - this a real departure from the â€˜song-based musicâ€™ weâ€™re used to making.â€Andre also reveals a wider plan behind 'SOL':Â â€œâ€™SOLâ€™ - the Latin name for sun - marks the beginning of our â€˜solarâ€™ cycle. The next record, which is already in the works, will be a much more dark, lunar affairâ€ Much more to look forward to from Dreamweapon then, but for now watch the stunning video forÂ 'Monte da Virgem'Â and listen to the hypnotic first single for great example of whats to come on the new record.
