Toronto duo Dermabrasion have shared new song ‘Halberdier’.
The group have emerged from Toronto’s close-knit DIY community, blending post-punk aspects with some outre themes. Working on their debut album with Josh Korody, themes include Catholic guilt, LaVeyan Satanism and attendant genre fiction, internalised shame, and body horror. Y’know – the good stuff.
Out on January 26th via Hand Drawn Dracula, Dermabrasion have timed the announce with the opening of spooky season, and there’s a definitely All Hallow’s Eve feel to new song ‘Halberdier’.
A sign of things to come, it finds the duo – Adam Bernhardt and Kat McGouran – at their most incisive. Backed by some lo-fi visuals, ‘Halberdier’ is a crunching statement of intent.
Tune in now.
