After presenting their acclaimed Juno-nominated full-length debut in 2016 and subsequent Kingfisher EP, Concubine, a collaborative project comprised of Thoughtless label boss Noah Pred and Rick Bull (a.k.a. Deepchild), have outdone themselves with their new full-length, 2018.
The pair met at a studio in Berlin earlier in the year and reflected on the treacherous path the world is slowly going down. Together, they channeled their collective angst into an elegant pastiche of dub techno and electro-driven soundscapes. The result is a cosmic work of sheer sonic beauty.
Ahead of 2018‘s release on November 15, we’re pleased to world premiere the music video of the album’s closing track “Decenter” directed by Pred.
“Steeped in the familiar hypnogogia of post-rave Berlin, ‘Decenter’ was the first tune started in Concubine’s latest album sessions,” Pred tells us. “It closes the record with quirky but euphoric Juno leads and a titular nod to rhizomatic influences, alluding to recent fascinations with decentralized exchange (and perhaps even consciousness).”
