With the debut full band live shows taking SXSW by storm last month & hitting the critical lists, Souterrain is extremely stoked to announce the signing of the awesome DOLDRUMS to our roster!
The title track ‘Egypt’ premiered today on Pitchfork and NME - download it for free here:
Ahead of a European tour with Grimes and appearances at The Great Escape & Dot to Dot festivals, Doldrums - the moniker of 22 year old Montreal producer Airick Woodhead - will release a 3 track single of brand new material on limited edition 12” vinyl & digital download, out June 4th.

Recontextualing the bombshelter desperation of the Montreal noise scene into an 8 minute warehouse club jam, the title track ‘Egypt’ is far more ambitious, sophisticated, and accessible than anything he's attempted before. It takes from UK and European electronic music but places an unmistakably North American attitude at its core.
