The stream comes just a few days before the release of the album from the Brooklyn duo

Brooklyn based duo Opal Onyx are set to release their new album Vessel via Tin Angel this Friday (December 4), and ahead of that, we've got the whole thing streaming exclusively above.

A gorgeous and constantly shifting mix of deep, dark electronics and serene cello, it comes five years on from the superb Delta Sands, with the duo describing working on it as a to channel the trauma of the intervening half decade. Opal Onyx's Sarah Nowicki says: "It's our therapeutic vessel we can put everything in to, a form of therapy that means we can transcend everything and see our creative vision more clearly."

Nowicki's bandmate Matthew Robinson adds: "We were both going through lots of crazy, stupid personal drama. That's just life, but we've collected all of that within this record. We wanted to put it in a place, a container or vessel, and now it's like detonating a device in the middle of the desert."

Tin Angel will release Vessel on December 4, 2020.
