‘SUM/ONE’ is the solo debut for Gang Gang Dance’s Brian DeGraw, aka the bEEdEEgEE in question, and the story of the album’s creation rests prominently in the music itself.
Recorded in Woodstock – a stark contrast to DeGraw’s usual dwelling space, New York City – ‘SUM/ONE’ is an absorbing journey into the mind of an artist clawing through a world of noise, desperate for clarity.
Thus, the album is at its best when DeGraw’s chaotic textures give way to more structured declarations of despair.
