Even this far into the 21st century, the recent social media furor surrounding US congresswoman and free style dancer Alexandria Ocasio Cortez illustrated that the spectacle of someone dancing without compunction can still ruffle the right (and alt right) feathers. In which case, all hail the third album from Toronto’s ardent, art dance sibling trio DOOMSQUAD.
Let Yourself Be Seen is the most assertive, ambitious, groove
sodden declaration of intent yet from Trevor, Jaclyn and Allie Blum as: the sound of dancefloor believers and thinkers firing on all personal and political fronts, at a time when we need it most.
Even if DOOMSQUAD never lacked the courage of their convictions, Let Yourself Be Seen ups the stakes. On 2016’s Total Tim, the trio issued invitations to free your mind, body and spirit over dirty bass lines and hypnotic disco jams. And yet, their reliance on unspoken sibling intuition left them fearing that much of its “message and meaning” had gone unheard. Thus, the trio took a more forthright approach for their third album, aiming to “ crystallize what DOOMSQUAD is and what it means to us. What we always knew but put at the forefront of this record is that DOOMSQUAD is a project of protest, catharsis and emotional and spiritual re-connection through music and, especially, through dance music culture. It’s about activating the body on the most fundamental level, into states of change, release and reunion.”

All our songs are about fleeing the ruins of human civilization after the Earth apocalypse. Join us and we’ll start a new life in orbit on the Space-Hosted Rotating Inertial Manned Platform (S.H.R.I.M.P. Ring)
