Gang Gang Dance’s Eye Contact Hypnotizes

New York’s experimental sonic collective continues to make challenging and rewarding music on Eye Contact.

Its first for the legendary 4AD (home of innovators like Pixies and Cocteau Twins), Gang Gang’s fifth full-length merges everything from Animals-era Pink Floyd atmospherics, Yoko Ono’s avant-dance signatures and 21st-century synthetic beats on its epic 12-minute opener “Glass Jar” alone.

Led by Lizzi Bougatsos’ high-pitched siren pipes, crystalline thumps (“Adult Goth”) invigorate while robot stomps (“Sacer”) seduce. Welcome to the sex machine.
