To mark the release of fourth album Eye Contact, Brooklyn's Gang Gang Dance is the latest act to record a 4AD Session. Filmed in early April at Angelic Studios in the heart of rural England, the band convened in a purposefully built 20ft square mirrored room, encased by endless reflections of themselves.

Inspired by the so-called 'infinity rooms' of the seminal Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, the construction of the space comprised most of the time allotted to recording. Consequently, the session didn't begin until midnight, and continued through until sunrise the next day. Inevitability, the twilight hours suffused the performance with a subtle euphoria, which allayed with the warped environment crated by the mirrors, touched the renditions of 'Glass Jar' and 'Adult Goth' with an otherworldly quality.

With the idea to create all effects live in the space sans digital manipulation, the resulting performance channeled a raw responsiveness to the music as it was being played, as witnessed in the 15 minute take on the visceral dancehall of 'MindKilla' and the Balearic feel of 'Chinese High'. Indeed, spontaneity was key to the entire session. 'MindKilla' was recorded in one take and improvised to include an exclusive airing of previously unreleased track, 'KOU-DA-LEY', while 'Adult Goth' likewise segues into a delirious version of 'Bond'. Adding to the room's ambience, the hanging crystals lent a prismatic quality, rendering the kaleidoscope of Eye Contact in primary colours, and helping mark the session as a true landmark in the series.

The four-song session provides a glimpse into what fans can expect on the band's forthcoming tour, taking in North America, Europe and Japan.
