There is that time when night and day are seemingly entwined. When you should be sleeping but just aren’t able.
The darkness is fading and the morning sun is taking its place. This is the time of day where the new album 'Delivery' by Gang Signs exists. The Vancouver, BC band's long awaited second album is all hushed synths, ethereal boy/girl harmonies and textured grooves. Following up on their first album Geist, which was an homage to another time of day, that long walk home from the club where your only solace takes place within the confines of your headphones, the band has decided to let some light in to their otherwise heavy and drone-y affair.
Recorded at Jacknife Sound with producer Jason Corbett ( ACTORS , Art d'Ecco ) Gang Signs reproduced their sequence heavy tracks with mostly live instrumentation for this outing, bringing the album a warmer feel without sacrificing their trademark moodiness. Band leader Peter Ricq has stated that this album is his homage to the hyper surreal and energetic films of the 90s, like Go, Rush, True Romance and Fresh. Films where the protagonists find themselves trapped in a time, traversing the underbelly of their city trying to find that thing that will make them feel whole again. Be it a party, a love or whatever their version of a special delivery is - though the thing they are looking for is usually the thing that ends of destroying them.
