From salt, sand and circuitry, Australian industrial dance act Forces assemble their self titled EP, available on limited edition 12″ vinyl via Siberia Records. Simultaneously sumptuous and sterile, Forces new framework offers guidance through the hostile terrain it generates.
Thirsting for a synthesis between body, land and technology, this work is the first significant artifact in Forces exploration of dance and pop. Their sound embodying both the vastness of Australia’s arid landscapes and its voracious appetite for technology.
First single ‘World in Focus’ is available as a free download. Exploring the notion of Australia as playground, ‘World in Focus’ offers visions of a dynamic landscape worthy of the bodies of tomorrow.
Forces have surged to prominence since emerging in 2011, quickly establishing a reputation for confronting live performance coupled with concise and visceral dance music. Forces live highlights include performances at The Sydney Opera house for Vivid Festival, alongside Zola Jesus and Light Asylum, and many shows with their contemporaries including My Disco, Gang Gang Dance and label-mate Kirin J Callinan.
The self titled EP will be available on limited edition 12″ vinyl on Midnight Juggernauts’ label Siberia Records on 9 December 2012. The digital release will be available via technodissidents.bandcamp.com.
