Collapsing Scenery shares their latest video “Years of Lead (Are Back Again)” via BlackBook.

Collapsing Scenery is the meeting of two fertile and febrile minds, Don DeVore and Reggie Debris. Together they straddle the gap between music, art, film and politics, seamlessly moving between each with the same ease at which they traverse the globe, soaking up experiences and immersing themselves in different cultures.

Their upcoming full-length ‘Stress Positions’ is a forward-looking album with strong state-of- the-world lyrical content. In the tradition of so many defining electro duos – whether Suicide, Pet Shop Boys or Underworld – Collapsing Scenery’s architecture is entirely of their own creation. They’ve built their own world and live in it.

All are welcome.

“drawing on urbane post-punk references like Cabaret Voltaire and A Certain Ratio… one of 2017’s wickedest grooves”BlackBook

“a throbbing slab of fuzzed-out drone-funk that’s in the same orbit as, say, early-’90s hip-hop-influenced Sonic Youth.” –Brooklyn Vegan 

“Think of a transcendentally twisted fairy tale from hell in beautiful chaos, and you’re right there with Collapsing Scenery” –Flaunt
