Kazuashita, Gang Gang Dance’s long-awaited sixth studio album, is released today.

The band’s first record together since the acclaimed Eye Contact in 2011, Kazuashita is an intoxicating mix of shoegaze and electronic ambience.

Founded by Lizzi Bougatsos, Brian DeGraw and Josh Diamond, Gang Gang Dance has consistently blurred the boundaries between the New York art and music scenes for nearly two decades.  They are as comfortable performing rare improvisational sets at the Whitney Biennial as they are at Coachella and count Dash Snow & Dan Colen, Tinchy Stryder and the Boredoms as previous collaborators.

Kazuashita was produced by DeGraw after recording sessions across several New York studios and art spaces.  The trio were joined by drummer Ryan Sawyer (who met the band through the Boredoms’ BOADRUM project) and Jorge Elbrecht (who worked on additional production and mixing duties).
