Divide And Dissolve, a duo consisting of Takiaya Reed (saxophone, guitar, live effects) and Sylvie Nehill (drums, live effects), have announced their signing to Invada Records with a crushing new single, 'We Are Really Worried About You', ahead of a full album called Gas Lit next year.

"'We Are Really Worried About You' is a call to transformation and freedom," Divide And Dissolve say. "This song and video seek to undermine and destroy the white supremacist colonial framework. We are weaving together our fight for Indigenous Sovereignty, Black and Indigenous Liberation, Water, Earth, and Indigenous land given back. Decolonise now."

Mashiahof adds of the video for the track, which you can watch above: "The world is structured to mould us down into stunted vessels that have to gaslight ourselves of our own truths/experiences just to survive.

"This video felt like an expression of that process: the desperation to be heard and the stonewall silence that pushes you into the void of perpetual self-doubt and self-sabotage. The concept and the collaboration aspects seemed to also mirror what it takes to move through this grief, that you need friends and community to be able to address these things together and help each other heal through it."

Speaking about the signing, Invada label head Geoff Barrow says: "I'm really looking forward to them releasing their new album with us and we 100% support their fight to abolish white supremacy with their crushing doom."

Invada will release Gas Lit in January 2021.
