DALHOUS280414Dalhous ready Will To Be Well LP on Blackest Ever Black – hear 'Abyssal Plane'

Mere weeks after the release of the Visibility Is A Trap EP, Dalhous have announced their second LP for Blackest Ever Black.

Will To Be Well sees writer and producer Marc Dall continue his exploration of the life and work of ‘anti-psychiatry’ figurehead R.D. Laing (as showcased on their debut album An Ambassador For Laing), but this time broadening his interest to “more universal and enduring mysteries: the relationships between body and mind, illness and wellness, the physical and the metaphysical.”

A “thread of anxiety” runs through the album, the press materials state, alluding to “the countless self-help strategies and theories of ‘wellness’ that have proliferated in the last 50 years.”

The first track to be taken from the album is ‘Abyssal Plane’, a percussion-led, richly harmonic cut that isn’t a million miles away from Dalhous’ fellow countrymen Boards of Canada. Sample that below and see the track titles underneath. The double LP is out on June 30.

Catch Dalhous live at St John-at-Hackney Church in east London on May 22, supporting Wolfgang Voigt.
