A collaboration between Alessio de Felice (Tara In Tibet) and Alison Flora (Sopoorific), Sun Dogs take its name from an optical atmospheric phenomenon. Caused by the refraction and scattering of light from plate-shaped hexagonal ice crystals suspended in high, cold clouds, the choice of alias seems fitting faced with the amalgam of dark industrial and neofolk the duo are set to release on Italian label LEK, or Last Europa Kiss.
Recorded between recorded between the Pink City of Toulouse and Berlin, ‘Voices Of Disability’ is an angry esoteric mantra, centred on injustice, inequality and social division. Sopoorific’s raspy French voice slurs over tension-filled rounds of the industrial darkwave, a curse to religious and political agendas and their effect on the world. Allegedly, the Sun Dogs are most conspicuous when the sun is close to touching the horizon.
Lies, Murder, Kaos is out December 30th on LEK – pre-order direct from the label.
