Collapsing Scenery is the meeting of two fertile and febrile minds, Don De Vore and Reggie Debris.
Together they straddle 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.
Since forming in 2013 “under a pall of paranoia and disgust” they haven’t stopped moving. A conversation with them recalls stories of recording a ‘goth-dancehall’ track in Jamaica with Ninjaman, sailing into Britain for a series of shows, visiting occupied territories in Palestine on fact-finding missions, recording their debut album on a remote ranch in Texas and soaking up rays in Corsica – and that’s in the first five minutes.
The debut album 'Stress Positions' is a glorious collision of futurist electro, glacial goth tones, techno, post-punk and chillwave recorded using analogue electronics: samplers, step sequencers, synths and drum machines. Aesthetically it recalls the early pioneering synth-punk of bands such as Human League, Screamers and The Normal, when the most forwarding thinking punks looked to the twenty-first century. Dig deeper and it reveals an articulate, highly politicised collection that’s far from nostalgia for the recent past. Quite the opposite: 'Stress Positions' is forward-facing with strong state-of-the-world lyrical content.
Collapsing Scenery are entirely self-sufficient, sonic buccaneers sailing the seas with piratical intent.
