We are proud to announce the debut album release from All We Are, on 5th January 2015. I Wear You, will be released as a single on 3rd November 2014. The accompanying video, directed by Kate Moross, brings the album artwork to life...
All We Are are a global gathering made up of Ireland’s Richard 'O Flynn (drums, vocals), Norway’s Guro Gikling (bass, vocals) and Brazil’s Luis Santos (guitar, vocals), who met at university in Liverpool.
Written initially in a cabin in the isolated Norwegian mountains, with follow-up sessions in a secluded cottage in North Wales, the album was finished and perfected in their studio in a disused school in Liverpool. The record was then recorded in London with producer Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, M.I.A, Hot Chip).
A total democracy, the band write all music and lyrics together. Inspired by a shared love of hip-hop and soul music, Guro calls their sound “psychedelic boogie”.
Born of long, late nights, dreamy melodies, supple psychedelics and gorgeous midnight disco grooves – this is the sublime, swirling sound of All We Are.
All We Are will be available on CD (DS091CD), LP (DS091LP) and Digital (DS091D). A limited edition LP featuring a bonus 7” with the tracks ‘Reach’ and ‘Just Give It To Me’ will be available through Dom Mart. Pre-order the album on physical formats through Dom Mart HERE and digitally through iTunes HERE. All pre-orders come with instant downloads of ‘I Wear You’ and ‘Feel Safe’.
The band were live in session at Maida Vale for Huw Stephens on Radio 1 last night where they performed their previous single, Feel Safe, plus two brand new tracks - ‘I Wear You’ and ‘Stone’. Listen back HERE (37 mins in), or try this rip of their forthcoming next single.
After support slots with Warpaint and Jungle and standout performances at The Great Escape, Field Day and Port Eliot, All We Are can now announce two headline shows for October. They will be playing Kazimier in Liverpool on the 15th as well as their biggest London show to date at Oslo on the 21st. The Liverpool- based 3-piece are also set to play Green Man, Reading, End Of the Road, Electric Picnic and Festival No.6 within the next month.
