The Needle Drop

Black Dresses mercilessly kills us with kindness on Peaceful as Hell.

The Canadian noise-pop duo’s music conjures a psychotic slumber party, or a Second Life rave, but remains grounded in the bittersweet beauty of lifelong friendship.

It's elements of mixing electronic music and industrial rock works so well. Loved this wasn't expecting this to be that good.
