NYC duo Acrylics announced their return after a five year absence today, premiering a new single, “Keeper Finder” the band’s new, DADA minor, comes out on September 23rd via PaperCup Music. The follow up to their 2009 debut EP, All Of The Fire EP, produced by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear. “DADA minor is a textured work incorporating many musical themes into one whole. The LP Took shape during a year of writing, re-writing and home-recording, the final selections were tracked and mixed in several studios and apartments across New York City. Overdubs and ghostly atmospherics were recorded in a barn in the Poconos and a house in Woodstock. Acrylics completed sessions in SOHO’s recently shuttered Magic Shop one day after David Bowie’s last known session. Acrylics co-produced DADA minor with Eric Gorman (Kuroma, Au Revoir Simone) and Josh Ascalon (Neon Indian, Twin Shadow). Heba Kadry (Neon Indian, Liturgy) was mastering engineer. Frequent collaborators Sam Mason (Willy Mason), Will Berman (MGMT), Joaquin Cotler (Chickentown), James Richardson (MGMT), William Flynn (St. Vincent), Danny Meyer (Chairlift, Julia Holter), and Patrick Wimberly (Chairlift, Blood Orange, Solange Knowles) also made key contributions to the fabric of the album.
Acrylics is the musical partnership of Molly Shea and Jason Klauber. The pair, who married in 2014, has been making music together for over a decade. There’s a special kind of energy that develops between collaborators over time and we hear that subtle telepathy within the tracks of Acrylics’ new album DADA minor, out this September on PaperCup Music. Trademark interplay between Shea and Klauber’s voices is more pronounced and sonically adventurous than ever before. The same goes for their guitar work. Sometimes lush harmonies blanket the landscape. Other passages are sung in percussive unison as two voices are forged into one new voice.
