The Needle Drop

Black Dresses go harder than ever before on their first post-disbandment album.

After their sudden dissolution last year, the Toronto noise duo return just as suddenly with a new album. Like their previous work, it’s full of pain, dissociation, and hopelessness—and surprisingly, a new tranquility.

I've never listened to Black Dresses, but after this album i am fully sold on their hype.

This is really a 2021 must listen and a requirement of you're a lover of abrasive industrial records.

Black Dresses are back, baby!

Black Dresses are a Canadian duo, consisting of Devi McCallion and Ada Rook. In just two years, between 2018 and 2020, they released four albums before disbanding due to harassment.

I spent a lot of time wondering what it would be, but my hype rose ... read more
