Better Corners – a new project consisting of Tomaga’s Valentina Magaletti, Wire’s Matthew Simms and Talk Normal’s Sarah Register – have shared details of their debut album, Modern Dance Gold, Vol. 1.

Out in May, the eight-track record comprises elements of drone and noise music, as well as sound art. The group came together on the record "with no predetermined direction," says a press release, working on it across England and the US between March and December of 2021.
