Taking aim at the “white supremacist colonial framework.”
Divide and Dissolve are releasing their third album, called Gas Lit, via Geoff Barrow’s Invada label this January.
Gas Lit aims to “undermine and destroy the white supremacist colonial framework and to fight for Indigenous Sovereignty, Black and Indigenous Liberation.”
The duo features Takiaya Reed on saxophone, guitar, and effects, alongside Sylvie Nehill on drums and effects.
Speaking about single ‘Prove It’, they share: “colonial power structures, power dynamics, and societal expectations rely on Black, Indigenous, and people of colour being Gas Lit and denying our experiences, because the predominant white supremacist narrative demands us to.”
Gas Lit was produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Ruban Neilson who has also designed its vinyl artwork, and includes contributions from writer and artist Minori Sanchiz-Fung.
It follows Divide and Dissolve’s second album, Abomination.
