  • The second album from Scottish duo Dalhous will see release on Blackest Ever Black in June. Marc Dall and Alex Ander first appeared on Blackest Ever Black in 2012, and so far they've chalked up an album and two EPs for Kiran Sande's label. According to a press mailout, Will To Be Well reflects Dall's "continued interest in the life and arcana" of Scottish psychiatrist and author R.D. Laing, who was referenced in the title of the first Dalhous LP, An Ambassador For Laing. The album also explores "the relationships between body and mind, illness and wellness, the physical and the metaphysical," with track titles that touch on these themes—"Her Mind Was A Blank," "Thoughts Out Of Season"—alongside others like "Lovers Of The Highlands," which explores Dall and Ander's "deep connection to the rugged contours of their native Scottish landscape." Will To Be Well follows the recent Visibility Is A Trap EP, which landed via Blackest Ever Black this month. You can stream album cut "Abyssal Plane" via the SoundCloud player below:
