SENS DEP - Share New Music Video And Offers Full Stream Of The Upcoming Album

Australian shoegaze/ambient/drone trio Sens Dep just shared a new video for the song "Nebuvital", taken from the long awaited debut album entitled Lush Desolation, which will be released on 30th November as a self-release. Sens Dep (Sensory Deprivation) is a band that creates textured noise, ambient and shoegaze. These sonic ruminations explore ideas of control, restraint and abandon in equal measure.

The band was formed back in 2009 by Andrew and Ben Yardley as a side project for Melbourne band Laura. Sens Dep initially created sounds to accompany visual media, including installations and a film commission but this slowly took on the form of a live band Retail Fireworks and saw the group add Guy Roche and Pat Fitton to their line-up. With a sound that shifted between effects-laden guitar drones, noise, and electronic beats, Retail Fireworks played a string of specially curated live shows around Melbourne.

The song "Nebuvital" features bass loaded with vibrating tin and guitars pealing in the roof. A story of relieved tension from final days of barbiturate therapy. In recent years the group has returned to its original incarnation Sens Dep, with an emphasis on recording. Consisting of Andrew Yardley (guitar/bass/vox/production), Ben Yardley (guitars/field recordings/production), and Caz Gannell (electric and acoustic cello/general noise).

Recorded over four years in a tin shed, an alpine hunter's hut, concrete inter zones, and the Tasmanian wilderness, Lush Desolation is as much a product of the environments it was recorded in as the ideas themselves. A sonic tension underpins much of the album, a delicate balance that isn't always resolved. Watch now the captivating video for "Nebuvital" in the player below, as well the entire album, Lush Desolation, ahead of its official release. Link
